> When I have a postgresql node fail pgpool switches the primary node as it should. However I have found that any existing database connections get reset. I can see how this may be required given that the socket from pgpool to the backend needs to be recreated. Is this expected or is there a way to configure pgpool to keep database connections open across failures?

Yes, it's an expected behavior and there's no way to avoid it.
