I have a php application that uses memcache and a back-end database
At times we see high "current connections" in memcache and can't determine why.
Why php "misses" from memcache and needs to go to the backend db, does it keep a mem cache connection open until the data is returned?
I am seeing "Too many open connections" in my memcache log. I know that I need to fix some things with my back end DB but I am wondering if a slow DB would cause memcache connections to be kept open.
