MYSQL Problems

I have a production package that is using MySQL as it's database server. Randomly throughout the day, we are experiencing problems. The stated error is as follows:

mysql.data.mysqlclient mysqlexception: reading from the stream has failed -> System.IO.IOException: a connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

I looked on the MySQL suport forums and noticed that this can be caused when something exceeds the maximum allowable packet size. I pushed the packet size in the mysql config file up to one gig, and we still have this error.

I should also mention that the software is C#, we are using the mysql C# connector, and the issue seems to be random, but crops up regularly.

See the attached jpg for details.

Make sure you increase the max packet size on both the server and the client side.

It also turns out that switching off connection pooling altogether solved several issues for us. The C# MySQL connector just seems a little buggy.
