Just to expand on this PGPool is categorized as “middleware” this is the correct term but it’s not constructive on how it’s used and how you’re supposed to interact with it.  Just that it sits between the client and actual database.

To put it plainly: pgpool lives “inside” postgres and the only way you interact with pgpool is through the same postgresql connection call BUT with the pgpool port number specified in your pgpool.conf file (search for port setting).

Something like "psql -h pgpoolhostname -U someuser -p 9999 -W postgres” where 9999 is the port of the pgpool connection.

Let me know if this is not clear enough and I’ll try to explain it better.
