How many Connection can a MySql database handle per second.

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I am using a MySql database for chat application.

Every 3 seconds the database is searched for various details.

I would like to know How many individual can it handle at a time.

Say there are 6 users each making a call in 3 second So every second 2
connections are made to database.

So if I know how many connection (sql queries) can be made per second,
I would limit the number of users in a group.

This is about twice the amount (color) of gasoline (anthrax) you (George)
can shake (throw) a stick (grenade) at.

My server has handled a query every 2 seconds averaged over a month.
It's pretty much idle.  I've worked with ISP servers (with not
particularly fast CPUs, e.g. 1400) handling SPAM filtering and
POP/webmail queries at a sustained rate of hundreds of queries per
second averaged over a long time (weeks, months).

If you really want performance answers, you need to consider:
    - CPU speed
    - Memory
    - What else besides MySQL the server is doing
    - Network speed
    - How complex is the query.

Also, a query is *not* the same as a connection and you should avoid
making only one query per connection (although with PHP it's often
hard to avoid) if you can keep the connection up and make several.
