Disconnection problem

Disconnection problem

Postby szinkopa » Sat 09 Jul 2005 22:33

I have just noticed that when I disconnect from PostgreSQL, its logfile shows this:, otto@test, 1456 [2005-07-10 00:23:26] LOG: statement: SELECT * FROM pgsqldirect.Dept, otto@test, 1456 [2005-07-10 00:24:25] LOG: unexpected EOF on client connection, otto@test, 1456 [2005-07-10 00:24:25] LOG: disconnection: session time: 0:01:16.86 user=otto database=test host= port=1369

The first line is my command
Then I clicked disconnect in the DataReader sample. And nothing happened in the logfile.
Then I closed the DataReader sample application, and the 2nd and 3rd lines was added into the logfile.
This is abnormal termination, Connection.Close() method should disconnect, and it should be shown in the logfile like with psql command line tool, that disconnects correctly.

This takes place due to Connection Pool. You can turn it off by adding pooling = false to your connection string. You can call PgSqlConnection.ClearPool method to close connections that currently in pool.

Ok, but when I close the application Dispose is called for the connection, isn't it? And then it should close the connection(s) properly. Right?

In case where PgSqlConnection object is finalized by Garbage Collector the connection is not always closed right. You have to call explicitly PgSqlConnection.Dispose or PgSqlConnection.Close method.
