I have created a second database on the same server as magento database, then I've created a module that fetches data from the second database. In order to fetch data from the second database I have used the

The connection works but once in a while (at random apparently) magento breaks because of "too many connections" errors. So my question is:

- do I manually have to close the opened custom collections?
