Splunk DB Connect: How to enable Connection Pooling?

I'm using DB Connect and I noticed in the setup instructions, they have an option for "Enable Connection Pooling" - I assume this is different than Search Head Pooling? If so, how do you Enable Connection Pooling via DB Connect? In Java, we have Java Connection Pooling that does the following: The connection pooling helps to utilize and efficiently re-use the database connection in a multithreading environment. The idea is to share the database connections (limited connections) with the users (unlimited numbers) in the most efficient way. Is this automatically set in Splunk DB Connect? If not, where are the instructions for to "Enable Connection Pooling"?

Hi, thread pooling in the java bridge is automatic and sounds like what you want; that's different from the search head clustering that replaced search head pooling.
