doctl databases pool

Go to Navigation




The subcommands under doctl databases pool are for managing connection pools for your database cluster.

A connection pool may be useful if your database:

  • Typically handles a large number of idle connections,
  • Has wide variability in the possible number of connections at any given time,
  • Drops connections due to max connection limits, or
  • Experiences performance issues due to high CPU usage.

Connection pools can be created and deleted with these commands, or you can simply retrieve information about them.
