EDB recently integrated PgBouncer, a lightweight connect pooler, with BigAnimal, our fully managed cloud PostgreSQL database as a service. This built-in integration helps developers and DBAs more easily manage Postgres connections and maximize workload efficiency.
As deployed with BigAnimal, the widely used PgBouncer acts as a proxy server to maintain a pool of connections between a client and the database server. PgBouncer offers eased connection management vs. PostgreSQL’s native process of handling connections, which can become resource-intensive when connections are created and discarded often (e.g., loading webpages).
Customers can optionally enable PgBouncer through the user interface, API, or CLI. PgBouncer is supported for single node and high availability clusters.
