Currently, our service processes connect to a single DB on startup. If that DB enters a bad state while running, the process continues to run, serving 500s.

Instead, we should pick from a set of healthy DBs on each request.

Change mentions this issue: internal/frontend: get a DataSource on each request

gopherbot pushed a commit to golang/pkgsite that referenced this issue Jul 28, 2020
Reorganize the server so that each request gets its own DataSource,
instead of using a single DataSource for every request.

Currently, the behavior doesn't change because we do in fact use
the same DataSource for every request. But this paves the way
to having a pool of health-checked DB connections, while still
having each request work with a single connection.

For golang/go#40444.
