DatabaseConnector: Query around support for DB Reconnect


(Brendan Furey) #1

Hi

I am running Achilles against a postgresql database, and as such, am using DatabaseConnector to connect to the database.

During the execution of the SQL queries, I will regularly see an error executing SQL, leading to a closed connection.

Once the connection is closed, I am seeing that the DatabaseConnector does not reconnect, and all subsequent queries will fail.

Does DatabaseConnector support an auto-reconnect if the connection drops?


(Martijn Schuemie) #2

Currently, DatabaseConnector does not support auto-reconnect. I’m also not sure it should. If a statement fails, then just going ahead with subsequent statements may lead to inconsistencies.

Perhaps it is better to focus on the original errors themselves? Any idea why there is the I/O error? (Some googling suggests network connectivity issues, but the server logs should help clarify what is going on).
