Are you using the DB output (MySQL?) plugin?  If so, I would suggest moving to
BarnYard and using it to connect to the DB instead.

What you are describing _sounds_ like the DB plugin can't keep a connection to
the MySQL DB.  What _state_ is the socket (to the db) in when you look at it
via netstat?
