Monitoring pool definitions

The Connection Pool Definitions panel under the Connection Management heading in the left navigation frame displays pool definition information for host and database connections. A pool definition is not listed until at least one connection is allocated from the defined pool.

A pool definition provides information about a collection of data source connections. Some related definitions are associated with a pool definition; for example, connection and macro definitions and user list name. In addition to creating associations between several other definitions, the pool definition provides configuration parameters for all connections in the pool, such as minimum and maximum pool size (in terms of number of active connections) and connection timers.
