The only way to require more than one connection per thread is if each
thread can process multiple overlapping queries. It's better to
finish with one query per thread before starting a new one, requiring
just one connection per thread at most. Processing multiple queries
at once from a single thread ties up more resources on both sides of

As it says in the user manual, the connection pool works better than a
connection per thread when you can't guarantee that a given thread
will execute queries often enough to avoid server timeout problems.
This can either be because some threads don't require constant access
to a database connection, or because there can be long idle times in
