Detailed Description

A pool of client objects associated with a MongoDB deployment.

For interoperability with other MongoDB drivers, the minimum and maximum number of connections in the pool is configured using the 'minPoolSize' and 'maxPoolSize' connection string options.

When connecting to a replica set, it is much more efficient to use a pool as opposed to manually constructing client objects. The pool will use a single background thread per server to monitor the topology of the replica set, all of which are shared between the client objects created by the pool. A standalone client will instead "stop the world" every 60 seconds to check the status of the cluster. Because of this, if multiple threads are available, a connection pool should be used even if the application itself is single-threaded.
