   configuration file?  (my setting is 100 (I think this is the
2) how would I look at the "open/used" connections?
3) should I try restarting postgres without changing the setting?
4) what repercussion would there be if I increase this number to,
   say, 200? (and would that be a good idea?)
5) finally, what's the best fix?  (Do I need to go to pgpool?)

Many thanks in advance.
