Connections % of configured limit has gone above 80

Hello,
I develop a small pet project which is mobile app in React Native. Noone uses it now. I have cluster M0 and today I got massive number of allerts saying Connections % of configured limit has gone above 80

Here I found some advices: https://intercom.help/mongodb-atlas/en/articles/3187208-closing-connections-in-mongodb-atlas-clusters

  • Restart the application which is currently making connections to your Atlas cluster.
  • Remove IP addresses from your IP whitelist for your project. Please note that removing the IP addresses from a given project will remove access to all clusters in that project.

And may questions are:

  • which application should I restart and how? There is only one app which has not been used during last 6 hours (there is no activity in logs)
  • where is the IP whitelist? In Security -> Network Access there is only one IP on the list - mine
  • how can I list the connections and kill them?

I had the same thing happen to me starting at approximately 9:34pm PST. I’m on the same tier (M0), have been using RealmSwift for prototyping on this cluster, and can no longer connect to it. (I can’t even browse collections, or connect via shell.)

I’m very interested to know whats going on; M0 free tier doesn’t support log downloading, so the tools for debugging this are few.

Same problem for me with a M0 tier!

Hey All, There is an issue with the proxy service for the free-tier only on Atlas - the team is working on a fix now, stay tuned.

Appears to have been resolved - thanks @Ian_Ward !

Hello,

We are also getting the same issue on M0. The weird thing is that my machine was shut down and no one was using the app we are prototyping. Can’t access the DB and collections anymore.
