I have an client app on Galaxy that’s running on a single compact container. It’s usually at 10-12 connections. However, I saw the site was down (data not loading) and was a bit shocked to see the connections hovering around 190. I immediately instantiated a load of new containers and it seems that very gradually the load is being shared.
At the time of writing I still have over 120 connections on the single container. If I load the site using that container the data won’t load, any of the others (8-10) connections right now are snappy.
My question is — I can kill the container with the bulk of the connections but I’m not sure if that’s a good idea. Will those clients reconnect automatically to another container or will the user have to refresh? I assume all new connections go the the new containers but the old one is still massively overloaded and I want to solve that problem more quickly in future.
