The application has two connection pools, one to service agent traffic, and the other for the UI. You can configure them as one logical pool with a 85/15 (agent/ui) percentage split, and use "dbPool" as the pool name in the further settings. Or, you can configure each pool separately, where the pool names are "default" and "ui". Note that the names after the "." come verbatim from DBCP at http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-dbcp/configuration.html.
