Database cluster constant connection

I created a PostgreSQL database cluster. Since then, even with trusted sources set to any IP. I have a constant “1 connection”.

I don’t know if this connection comes from Digital Ocean or a pending connection that occurred when I first tested if I could connect to the DB.

I can’t first anywhere if I can disconnect all clients connected, or debug current connections…

I don’t know either if this affect my pricing usage.

Anyone can help me?

Hi there,

The connection you’re seeing to the database might be the agent connection for system metrics.

The max backend Connections are defined according to the cluster size and system or agent connections do not count as part of that backend Connections.

I hope this helps.
