in thread DB Connection pool

My experience with databases is that they are far less I/O bound than many other tasks. As long as your machine has sufficient free RAM and your database is properly tuned, your queries should not be waiting for disk access often enough to matter.

Of course, it's worth testing. It might be that the proper setting for N is actually 2 * number of available CPUs.
