We have made some recent changes to SqlDb.pm that may be helpful to people using SQL databases with Radiator. 1. There is a new Timeout parameter for AuthBy SQL. This specifies the max time Radiator will wait to try to connect to or query an SQL server. Try setting it to, say 10 seconds. 2. There is a new FailureBackoffTime parameter for AuthBy SQL, that specifies how long Radiator will wait before trying to contact a failed server again. Defaults to 10 minutes. The net result of these 2 should be more graceful handling of SQL server failures. See http://www.open.com.au/radiator/downloads/patches-2.13.1/README for details on the new SqlDb.pm that implements these. Please try it and let us know if there are any problems.
