    Hi,
    What is the difference between connection pooling , Connection Concentration and Multiplexing in a Multithreaded Server Setup.

    What is their use.

    I am very very Confused about what exactly each one is and why??

    Maybe anyone out there can help.

    Thanks

    Connection pooling is a function of the connection manager that drops connections to the database when a user is inactive and then re-establishes them when the session becomes active again.

    Connection multiplexing allows multiple client sessions share the same physical connection. Again, this is implemented with the connection manager.

    AFAIK, Connection concentration is connection pooling. However, I am not 110% positive...

    Connection Concentration is supposed to be the same as Connection Multiplexing .........
