We have a software (maybe as well a hardware) problem. Our e commerce site uses for each searching client approx 16 database requests and after some times the system slows down and finally collapses with the error message to many open connections. We are presently running this
server with only 30% of the possible load and already when we reach 20.000 request on our site the error occurs.
We need some Mysql specialist advising and assisting us how we should setup our hardware and how we should configure our software for a smoother run.
