How to enable and disable connection pooling ?

 Posted by Bharathi Cherukuri on 5/22/2012 | Category: ADO.NET Interview questions | Views: 10981 | Points: 40

For .NET this connection pooling is enabled by default but if you want to just make sure set Pooling = true in the connection string.
To disable connection pooling, set Pooling = false in connection string if it is an ADO.NET Connection.
If it is an OLEDBConnection object set OLE DB Services = -4 in the connection string.

Here is the typical example of Connection Pooling connection string in the Web.config file

<add name="ConnStr" connectionString="Server=;Database=rtcmain; UID=rfgser; Password=fdfdfdf;Connection Timeout=30; Min Pool Size=5; Max Pool Size=40;"/>
