[jifty-devel] Jifty server stuck

I have seen this white screen of death before too on production servers. The
problem I found was that MySQL was dropping the client connection and Jifty
does not on each request perform ping-and-reconnect yet. I haven't hacked it
in because I wasn't sure what the best place to do it in the core would be.

However, the work around is very simple. At the very top of your dispatcher

before '**' => run { Jifty->handle->connect };

That will not reconnect if the current connection is still up and running,
but it will ping the database connection to check for liveness. If it fails
the liveness test, it will reconnect.

That's resolved the problem on my servers. I hope that helps.
