“Connections Opened” reports the number of connections opened to Adaptive Server. It includes any type of connection, such as client connections and remote procedure calls. It counts only connections that were started during the sample interval.
Connections that were established before the interval started are not counted, although they may be active and using resources.
This provides a general understanding of the Adaptive Server environment and the work load during the interval. This data can also be useful for understanding application behavior – it can help determine if applications repeatedly open and close connections or perform multiple transactions per connection.
See “Transaction profile” for information about committed transactions.
