Thank you for your response.

Re: handling multiple connection.
I have about 50 db instances running on each separate port on several boxes. Right now we just give one port to user, which is 6432, that's the port pgbouncer listens on. Then pgbouncer routes the connection to a different port/host based on the name of the db provided. This can be mapped in pgbouncer config file. The benefits of This mapping is end user do not need to know port/host of each db. I would like to know if pgpool can do the sames.
