    External database connections through a Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) URL are managed by Pega Platform and use connection pools to handle requestor traffic. You can modify the default connection pools to limit or increase connections and their timeout value that is created for each database user to optimize connectivity for your environment.

  • Viewing and modifying schema information

    Use Pega Platform tools to view and modify database schema information so that your application can respond to changing circumstances.

  • Troubleshooting database requests

    The Pega Platform database performance is a major factor in overall system performance, affecting response time for interactive, browser-based users, turnaround time for services, and throughput. You can use tools provided by Pega Platform to help you debug, trace, and analyze requests from the server to the Pega Platform database.
