What you might consider doing is making sure that you aren't forking with any database handles open. Shut them all down, fork, and bring them back as required. For example:
my $dbh = DBI->connect(...); $dbh->do(...); $dbh->disconnect(); foreach (...) { ... fork ... } $dbh = DBI->connect(...); $dbh->do(...); $dbh->disconnect();
This would look a lot better if you organized things into functions.

I think what is occuring is that the forked scripts are trying to close out the DBI connection that they inherit from the parent process. Since you can't close them more than once, you're in trouble just having them around at all when forking.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
