max_connections (integer)

We have a daemon (process) that monitors certain aspects of Postgres database.  When querying today using an object relational mapper (ORM) called SQLAlchemy, the following error was encountered:

sqlalchemy.exc.OperationalError: (OperationalError) FATAL:  connection limit exceeded for non-superusers

This posting on Stack Overflow indicates that the error was caused by insufficient connections available.

The posting below on the PostgreSQL site states that max_connections (integer) parameter defaults to 100 connections.  There are just a handful of users.


Does anyone know why this would happen?
Perhaps some connections are not being closed properly?
