How can I prevent my finished queries to stay in pool?

Below is the image of my database and a lot of my finished queries are staying and I want them to be removed but don't know how.

database image

This is my code that I made to sent the data from my database using Express:

Here is my articles.js file that sends the data as json.

router.get('/articles', (req, res) => {
  let sql = "SELECT * FROM ARTICLES";
  myDB.query(sql, (error, results) => {
    if (error) {
    } else {

and this is my connection.js that creates the connection to MySQL and Express

    const mysql = require('mysql');
const myDB = mysql.createPool({
    connectionLimit: 10,
    user: 'hmidev',
    password: 'hmidev',
    database: 'VD_NEW_WEBSITE'

myDB.getConnection((error, connection) => {
    if (error) {
    } else {
        console.log(`Successfully connected at VD_NEW_WEBSITE`);

module.exports = myDB;
  • myDB.end();? Look stackoverflow.com/q/27386205/10138734 and similar – Akina Oct 17 '19 at 7:49
  • nope, it doesn't do what I want, it just kills the connection instantly – learn2code Oct 17 '19 at 8:07
  • Connection is killed, but last query result is available nevertheless? – Akina Oct 17 '19 at 8:44
  • No it is not it kills the whole connection – learn2code Oct 17 '19 at 8:51
  • If so try to execute some "empty" query (SELECT 1; for example, or SELECT VERSION();) - maybe it will override previous recordset? and add proper tag(s) (maybe [node.js] ?) to your question. – Akina Oct 17 '19 at 9:32

Connections left in a connection pool will show up as "Sleep" in PROCESSLIST. The "Time" will continue to grow until grabbed by a new "connect".
