CAM Database Connection Pool Test

This test monitors the connection pools configured on the target CAM Payment System and reports the number of connections, used connections, and percentage usage of the connection pool. As a result, this test helps to identify whether any connection pool is being over-utilized and, hence, running out of free connections. This way, the test reveals how well the connection pools have been used.

Target of the test : A CAM Payment System

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for the target CAM Payment System being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Measurements made by the test



Measurement Unit


DB current pool size

Indicates the current number of connections in the pool.


This measure inidcates the current size of the connection pool.

DB used connection count

Indicates the number of connections that were used from the pool.



Total usage

Indicates the percentage utilization of the pool.


A value close to 100% is a cause for concern, as it implies that the pool is rapidly running out of free connections. Without free connections, the target application may not be able to service subsequent connection requests from users. To avoid this, you may want to allocate more connections to the pool.
