The host server (for database support) has supported persistent connections
for as long as I can remember.  As far as I know it's controlled entirely by
the client, not the server.

In my mind, I was comparing it to the design of the HTTP server, which has a
configurable pool of lightweight threads that are always active and waiting
for the next request.  In my opinion, that is the right design for the
dynamics of the Internet.

The communication job that receives the request is a prestart job.  As far
as I can tell the job that handles the request is a new job.

Did you mention it?  Or should I have assumed that connection pooling is the
default behavior for ASP?  Doesn't the script author have to ask for it?
