I have an AWS RDS t1-micro running MySQL 5.5. It gives me too many connections error. I checked and it allows 34 maximum connections concurrently. What I have read is that i can increase this max value by creating a DB parameter group for this Micro instance.
My confusion is
- Should I increase the max connection value for micro in DB parameter group? or Should i consider upgrading to next RDS level which provides more maximum connections (125)?
- Should I increase max_connections on micro RDS to 125 vs upgrading to RDS small instance?
- Why and What factors should I make the decision on?
