  • Hello,

    Each plan in our Heroku addon has a maximum number of allowed concurrent connections. If you are consistently exceeding the maximum for your current plan you can upgrade. Full specs for all of our offerings can be seen at

    However it may be an issue of connection management within your application rather than traffic level. If you're using connection pooling make sure that your app is configured with a pool size that does not exceed the maximum allowed by your current plan.
