This is a new issue happening since 2015-12-15 between 1PM and 7PM. There is an increase in traffic in serveral mysql servers, in particular parsercache and s4 (commons) servers, which leads to a higher amount of failed connections.
From the initial report:
> Also happening about once every few minutes for parsercache servers
> Last 3 hours in requests to /rpc/RunJobs.php on mediawiki-errors dashboard in logstash:
