The running but seems to no update the database was a problem that I
reported and you fixed in one of the very last release candidates. The
current 3.0.8 does not have that problem as best I can tell but it does stop
after between 8-20 hours with no log messages that I have been able to find.

Well the earlier rasqlinsert.1 code does have a problem that the new one
to fix.  I'll try to see what may be up with mysql_real_query() error
and see if we missed something there.
But in the OP, the problem is that rasqlinsert.1 is running, but not
the database, in this second report, rasqlinsert.1 is failing ??

I am seeing something similar with Netflow data processed by Radium (labels
added) and rasqlinsert reading the processed radium data from port 561. In
my case the rasqlinsert process dies without any error messages (it is built
with .debug and .devel) It isn't practical for me to enable debuigger output
since the failure can be many hours into the run.
The one clue that I do have it that the release candidate set (3.0.8-rc1)
worked fine.
I haven't had time to do much more than go back to the working release.

Hey John,
rasqlinsert() is multi-threaded, and its possible that
the cache concurrency thread, the one that is managing the
database cache, exited if the database fails.  
rasqlinsert() should close, if that thread is done.
So you are seeing rasqlinsert() is still running, but
not updating the database ??  Is rasqlinsert() getting
bigger ???  (should be generating INSERT and UPDATE 
requests, but the DB thread is not processing them ???)

I was wondering if it's normal behavior for rasqlinsert to cease inserting
netflow into the database if the connection becomes interrupted? It seems if
the mysql database is restarted or any part of the connection between
rasqlinsert and the db is broken, it will not attempt to re-connect and
continue flow insertion.
