max pool size was reached?

I'm using MySQL 5.051a for Windows and running a .NET winapp that uses approx 102 threads according to MySQL Administrator -> User Connections....

The winapp works fine for approx 1 minute then errors:

"The timeout period elapsed prior to obtaining a connection from the pool.  This may have occurred because all pooled connections were in use and max pool size was reached."

I have checked the winapp C# .NET code to make sure all connections close after execution.

I have installed MySQL 5.051a with all default setting intact.

I'm sure all MySQL syntax is correct as well.

I've never had this sort of error running our winapp in MSSQL Server with MSSQL syntax..

Any suggestions???

First and formeost, you have to make sure that your application really needs 100 connections to the DB. That is an awful lot. It sounds to me like the connections are not being closed. Look closely at your app to make sure that you are closing or disposing of all the connections. Setting them to null doesn't close them until the garbage collecter runs.

If your app logic really needs 100 connections, you can increase the number of max connections or increase the timeout. Are you using the mysql .net native connector or odbc?

It seems though MSSQL is more forgiving becasuse the program never failed until using MySQL.
