I agree, but the number of idle connections dont' seem to affect
performace only memory usage. I'm trying to lessen the load of
connection setup. But sounds like this tax is minimal?

When these issues started happening, max_connections was set to 1000 and
I was not using persistent connections.

Yes out of the 2400 odd connections, 500 are either in SELECT or RESET.

I agree, but not in this case.  I will look at using pooling.
