Connection Pooling for the .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC

.NET Framework 1.1

Connection pooling for the .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC is managed by the ODBC Driver Manager (DM) used for the connection and is not affected by the .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC.

To enable or disable connection pooling, use the ODBC Data Source Administrator (found in Control Panel or the Administrative Tools folder). The "Connection Pooling" tab allows you to specify connection pooling parameters for each ODBC driver installed. Note that connection pooling changes for a specific ODBC driver affect all applications that use that ODBC driver.

For more information on ODBC connection pooling, see the ODBC Programmer's Reference in the MSDN library located at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.

Note   The .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC is not included in the .NET Framework version 1.0. If you require the .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC and are using the .NET Framework version 1.0, you can download the .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC at http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads. The namespace for the downloaded .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC is Microsoft.Data.Odbc.
