doctl databases pool list <database-cluster-id> [flags]




Lists the existing connection pools for the specified database. The command returns the following details about each connection pool:

  • The database user that the connection pool uses. When excluded, all connections to the database use the inbound user.
  • The connection pool’s name
  • The connection pool’s size
  • The database within the cluster that the connection pool connects to
  • The pool mode for the connection pool. Possible values: session, transaction, or statement
  • A connection string for the connection pool
