There have been a few header changes in recent glibs which
might have an impact on socket closures...

Sounds like your exhausting file descriptors.  You likely
need to bump up the limit.  Also watch your idle timers
and kernel timers for TCP closure states.

Sounds like you need to tune the master for write-only access
(few indices), off load all the reads to slaves, and even use
slaves for backups and stuff.
