Thanks for the reply.
I did more tests (stop pgpool on master node) capturing the traffic at
server side, but even from this point of view some of the established
connections didn't receive a fin packet from the server to close the
Anyway I'm quite satisfied handling this situation (dead established
connections at client side) using the keepalive parameters in the
connection string to pgpool.
