( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

That's a lot of forking all at once, especially if you have several hundred objects you are polling. I have a feeling that you are exceeding the max connections to your database, and thus causing this code to execute:

if (!$child_dbh) { exit(0); }

That would explain your 'handle destroyed without disconnect messages'. To test this theory, try putting a disconnect command right before that exit and see if you still get the same warnings.

My first suggestion would be that you look at Parallel::ForkManager. You can then tune your program to only run x processes at a time. It will make your program more scalable and keep it from getting out of control.

My second suggestion would be to try ditcing the $child_dbh all together. I have a feeling that all of the child processes should be able to share the same $parent_dbh. (I might be mistaken here, give it a try).

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.
