If persistent connection is on means connection between client and server will not break even if client not using database still synchronization will be there by sending hello and hi packets.

While in persistent connection off connection will break as soon as host stops using the database.

Persistent connections are almost never reasonable in a WWW application.  Each request from a client initiates a new process on the server.  Each process needs its own connection, and when the process is complete, there is no further use for the connection.

Executive summary: Don't use persistent connections.
