The word from the GridSQL guru is:
I am not sure I understand why he has so many connections because each
segment should be on a different host. Maybe they have something set
up where there are multiple logical nodes (er, segments) running on a
single postmaster instance.
Maybe that further explodes if each segment creates a connection to
every other one and persists it.
In GridSQL, we have a pool of connections that are used, starting with
5 for each underlying node. These are shared amongst the users, unless
somethings stateful happens in which case the underlying connection
needs to become persistent for a user session. We also have an extra
connection for the metadata database, and some vestiges of old code
for a pool of "coordinator" connections, but they are not used for
Anyway, the bottom line is, GridSQL will not consume as many
connections as in the Greenplum case.
