Database connectivity problems from 'mothman'


Anyone been getting various database connectivity problems? My site is setup to email me most errors it encounters and I’m getting notified about once every couple minutes that my site either “can’t connect to the database”, “MySQL went away”, or the “MySQL client has run out of memory”.

This started happening around the time (deleted some email so can’t be sure) Dreamhost moved my account from pico to mothman for “performance reasons”.

I can connect to my DB form the web panel, and I can see the intermittant SQL errors on my site.

Even worse, I haven’t heard a peep out of tech support about this in 2 days since opening my support ticket. (!!)

Anyone else seeing this sort of weirdness?
