How does Connection Pooling work in Meteor.js?


How many connections are opened by default?

How many connections will it scale to under load?

Is this configurable in any way?

I’m noticing >6500 connections from my 20 blades running with Cluster. I’m trying to decide if this is expected/acceptable or if something is generating more connections than necessary.


Even though the answer might be straightforward, the question is very important. So here is my +1 to it.

Unfortunately I’m new to Meteor and Node/MongoDB ecosystem so cannot answer it properly.
