Thanks Tatsuo.
As  we have to upgrade the version in production, can you verify if it has been tested with EDB 9.5?
I raised a case with EDB support and they  are suggesting to upgrade to the latest version (3.4.5).

Pgpool-II 3.4.3 is pretty old (released on Apri 2015). I recommend you to obtain the latest one (3.4.10). I also I think you could ask support from EDB.
