I specified Maximum Connections as 3 and Mininmum Connections as 2 in Websphere 6.1 JMS Provider Connection Pool Settings. Queue Connection Factory was created in the Wecsphere MQ v6.0 JMS Provider.
After restarting the server, and i did a "netstat -an" in Windows Server 2003 command prompt, i can see 8 connections made to the MQ server with "ESTABLISHED" connection. (Verified by seeing the port number (1414)through which MQ listens to Websphere)
When i did a mointioring in the Tivoli Performance Viewer, I checked the following JCA COnnection Pools -> Websphere MQ JMS Provider -> <QCF JNDI Name> Which showed Create Count Value as 6.0
JCA COnnection Pools -> JMS Connection Factories - > JMS$<QCFName> which showed Create count value as 2.0
Does it mean that there are 8 open connections in the Connection pool?
