DB2 on Windows Server 2012

We recently started getting this error message.
 CLI0129E  An attempt to allocate a handle failed because there are no more handles to allocate. 
From what I have read, this is an issue with .NET Entity Framework not releasing connections to the database.  The developers are searching the application code to see if they can find the issue but in the mean time, is there anything I can do on the DB side to help with this?

I read this:  
and this:

but not sure I understand what they are saying.  This is the first exposure I have had to DB2 handles and not sure I understand them as well as I could.  Any insight would be much appreciated.
