rhoadesjn has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Has anyone had any issues with the mysql service dropping unexpectantly when adding info into a database using dbd::mysql? This seems to happen about once a week for one particual perl program. However, I have this perl program working on 20 other different servers with no issues. Mysql does not generate any useful error logs and perl does not tell me anything except the service dropped. Any insight into the potential issue or ways to debug the issue would be helpful! Thanks.
