# spicedb

Howdy! We're running spicedb on EKS backed by RDS... however, I'm trying to debug why I occasionally see dropped connections and errors concerning:
Copy code
failed to connect to <rds-instance> user=spicedb_admin database=spicedb`: dial error (dial tcp <vpc-ip-addr>:5432: operation was canceled)
Does anyone have tips on how to debug this. Pods are stable with no restarts, pods and rds are in the same VPC... It doesn't seem to be correlated with load. I'm curious if there are any more logs I can abstract from spicedb about this issue, to include in AWS support ticket (wanna make sure it's not DNS related)
