Here's some contextual information: I have a multi-tenant, WordPress MU installation running on Elastic Beanstalk, scaled up to 2 instances minimum. These are connected to the RDS database and are otherwise functioning correctly. Each WordPress install (tenant) has a database on a shared RDS cluster.
This doesn't happen in Aurora MySQL 5.6, which may be a clue, I just haven't been able to find an answer yet. A couple days ago I began upgrading to Aurora MySQL 5.7. I created a new cluster from scratch, and am importing individual databases for a gradual rollout in case there was any problems.
The RDS cluster has 1 primary instance and 1 read replica, and the error is occurring on both the primary and replica.
Here is a sample of the log:
2018-10-17T11:12:55.418509Z 34783 [Note] Aborted connection 34783 to db: 'unconnected' user: 'unauthenticated' host: '172.31.8.238' (Got an error reading communication packets) 2018-10-17T11:12:59.939953Z 34785 [Note] Aborted connection 34785 to db: 'unconnected' user: 'unauthenticated' host: '172.31.21.224' (Got an error reading communication packets) 2018-10-17T11:13:10.715438Z 34791 [Note] Aborted connection 34791 to db: 'unconnected' user: 'unauthenticated' host: '172.31.8.238' (Got an error reading communication packets)
The IPs are the EC2 instances so the connections aren't malicious as far as I can tell. I have the security group setup to only allow connections from the Elastic Beanstalk application.
db: 'unconnected' user: 'unauthenticated' to be pretty odd though.
The databases seem to be working fine but I'd like to resolve this before moving the rest of our clients over.
Please let me know if there's any other information I can provide, and thank you in advance for spending the time.
