EDB PgBouncer

EDB PgBouncer can manage your connections to Postgres databases and help your workloads run more efficiently. It's particularly useful if you plan to use more than a few hundred active connections. You can enable EDB PgBouncer to be entirely managed by BigAnimal, when creating your cluster. See Creating a cluster.

BigAnimal provisions up to three instances per EDB PgBouncer-enabled cluster to ensure that performance is unaffected, so each availability zone receives its own instance of EDB PgBouncer.


Currently, you can't enable EDB PgBouncer when creating a distributed high-availability cluster.

If you want to deploy and manage PgBouncer outside of BigAnimal, see the How to configure EDB PgBouncer with BigAnimal cluster knowledge-base article.
