Xml-Rpc + Mysql.NET = Threading problem

Hello all,

I come to you to getting help for managing multi threading and database connection.

My project use Xml-Rpc to receive messages, so each call come from a different
thread.
Incoming calls are executing SQL on a MysqlConnection.
MysqlConnection does not like when concurents calls appends.

For a fast and dirty solution, I've put a Monitor() at messages arrived.
But I would like to finally got a nicer solution.

What do you think about the architecture I should make ?

Should I create and manage a Pool of MysqlConnection and only locking when pool
is fully occuped ?

Do you know already made solutions for that case ?

Thanks a lot for you comments and ideas,
cyrille.

PS: Before I put the ugly Monitor, I got some errors like :

Exception: Connection must be valid and open. StackTrace:
at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.CheckState()
at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.ExecuteReader( CommandBehavior behavior)
at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.ExecuteReader( )

Exception: Expected prepared statement marker. StackTrace:
at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.NativeDriver.Prepare(String sql, String[] parmNames)
at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.Prepare()

what's wrong with the Monitor?

Anyway it's very typical and advised to have a connection pool which (the
pool) as a properly synchronized access and return a private connection on
demand.
In fact SqlConnection (for SqlServer), does it for you under the hood.

Otherwise you could open a new connection for each incoming message..

One thing you should NOT do is use the same connection at the same time in
different thread.

Hi Lloyd,

I loos multi-threading processing of incoming messages.

That's Great.
I've to find or write a connections pool for MySqlConnection ...
Perhaps someone already done it ?
Otherwise you could open a new connection for each incoming message..
I think it will be to heavy.
One thing you should NOT do is use the same connection at the same timein
different thread.
Thanks for your advise. I'll be care ;o)

Thanks a lot for your councils.

cyrille.

Hi Cyrille37
what's wrong with the Monitor? I loos multi-threading processing of incoming messages.

err.... could you reword this sentence?
I don't manage to guess its meaning....


Sorry for my bad english. I use my extra ball to try again :

With Monitor() at messages arriving, I lose the advantage of multi-threading.

Is that more readable ?
;o)
I have something like that (as an attached document of this answer).
Well it was a useless peace of code as SqlConnection already use a
connection pool under the hood.
But if you replace all the SqlConnection stuff by MySqlConnection it will
suddenly start to make sense!


THANKS A LOT !!!

Ok, I'll try it this afternoon.

<;oP> I hope you've make a non buggy code </;oP>

I give you a report after tests...

Cheers,
cyrille

Yep, do tell me! Hopes it will work great!

What about the Prepared Statements ?

I think they are associated with a SqlConnection.
So If I create some prepared statements they will stay associated with the
connection but I could not use them if Pool give me another connection ...

I'm not clear because I could not imagine how Prepared Statement will be managed
when using a ConnectionPool.

What do you think about that ??

Yeah !
Your code works fine.

I've just made one change that do not close connections when freeing them, to
avoid the open/close overload.
Connections will be closed by MySqlConnection.Dispose() in MySql.Data.

Another stuff appends to me. While reading the source code of MySql.Data to be
shure connections will be closed, I found that there is already a Connection
Pool in the connector... But I did not know because the documentation does not
talk about...

I don't know if I still need to use the DBConnectionPool ...
By the way, it was fun to test your code ;oP

I did some stress tests with the DBConnectionPool and without it.

Result are very very faster with DBConnectionPool (my version without Closing).

Good!
I guess you'll keep using it! ;-)

I would say, don't reuse them.
Create them on demand each time.
Not only it will make easier to maintain/use/understand, but I dont believe
there is that much to gain by trying to reuse them....

Hello Lloyd,

I think to reuse prepared statements for queries that are used very often.
In my project, there are about 50 to 100 clients and they are asking manytimes
for the same data.
For logged in, to get list of connected users, to get some layout information
and so on.

I think prepared statements are stored by the sql engine to be ready to replay
them. But they are associated with a connection...
So, perhaps for such needs I've to use a special connection ...

By the way, it's only a performance problem.

Thanks for the talk and for your code.
May I put your code on my wiki, with your name of course ?
