    Default Re: what is physical connection in connection pooling

    It's the real connection, probably to your database; setting up those connections can be quite expensive (resources, memory consumption, network connectivity etc.) so it pays back once you have such a connection, to reuse it and not throw it away; hence the connection pool.

    kind regards,
