SQL errors clicking on the notification link

I was on the hot deals page and clicked the notification bell on the top of the screen and get this error:

[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/ext/rfd/db/driver/mysqli_slave.php on line 57: mysqli::real_connect(): (HY000/1040): Too many connections
Return to the index page
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

The "Too many connections" error should be occasional unless there's a serious DoS or server problem. We've identified the problem, made adjustments to mitigate the frequency of this error, and have a plan to get rid of it entirely in the near future.
