[Mono-list] Time out using Npgsql

The web server and PostgreSQL are both on the same box.  Before I added the
hit counter, I could always get to the home page and the timeout only
occurred (about once or twice a week) on the page that connects to
PostgreSQL.  So, that eliminates the possibility of any network problem.  I
never have a problem with pgadmin, which is also running on the same box and
also runs across the network (to my work computer several miles from here),
it's always up and running (which eliminates any problem with PostgreSQL,
network, and PHP connections to PostgreSQL).

Hi Carl.

Can you check if your webserver box is having network problems with your
postgresql box? This may mean some type of firewall or some network program
which could temporarily disable access to your postgresql box.

Also, could you try some console app in your webserver box to connect to
postgresql box? This test could make you sure that you are being able to get
data from postgresql. It would also be good if you could put this console
to keep all day trying connections to postgresql in order to check if you
network down just sometimes.

I hope it helps.
