Enables connection pooling. When you enable connection pooling, each connection pool retains idle connection instances in memory. To delete the pools of idle connections, you must restart the Data Integration Service.
If connection pooling is disabled, the DTM process or the Data Integration Service process stops all pooling activity. The DTM process or the Data Integration Service process creates a connection instance each time it processes a job. It drops the instance when it finishes processing the job.
Default is enabled for DB2 for i5/OS, DB2 for z/OS, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and ODBC connections. Default is disabled for Adabas, IMS, Sequential, and VSAM connections.
