Enterprise Manager for iAS - Version:
This problem can occur on any platform.


AS Console JDBC metrics are not consistent with actual opened connections in the database.

After some tests V$SESSION shows 1 open connection, which was open from a data-source using pooling  while AS Console JDBC usage report 3 opened connections.

Settings for the data-source regarding pool of connections was : min-connections=1 max-connections=2

Metrics referenced are the ones displayed when an OC4J is select from the list of AS components:

"Open JDBC Connections" and "Total JDBC Connections"
