Is there a limit to the amount of connections Logaholic throws at MySQL at one time?
I am monitoring Logaholic using the MySQL Workbench and have noticed that when opening a profile for a large dataset website, only (5) MySQL connection are made at any one time. I have the max_connection setting in MySQL set to 500, but that doesn't seem to be the magic bullet.
Any suggestions as to why I only get (5) connections to MySQL from a dashboard with (7) tiles? From past support tickets I understand that each tile makes it's own MySQL call, so should I not see (7) connections?
Hi John, I will have to check this in detail, but connections are reused by mysql if I'm not mistaken so you don't nessesarily need to see the same number of connections as there are reports on your dashboard.
It turns out this has nothing to do with mysql, but has to do with a limit on the number of simultaneous HTTML requests your browser is allowed to execute.
This limit varies from browser to browser and also from version to version but generally it's between 4 and 6.
In firefox you can change this limit like this:
1. Go to "about:config"
2. Find and edit the following
3. Change the false to true if applicable; Change the maxrequest value to the number you want, like 20
I'm not recommending you do this, but it is possible. You can read more information here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Network.http.pipelining
