As I mentioned when I tried same thing with sysbench It can give me 200+
concurrent connection with same method and same machine.

As i can do this with different benchmarking tool It should not be
limitation of backend PostgreSQL server.

There should not be connection and disconnection because I am not using -C
option of pgbench which cause connection and disconnection for each query.
If I set max_connection of postgresql.conf to 200 and testing with -c 150 .
This should work fine, but it is not.

Setup might be difficult to explain here but will explain if required.

can you test simply 100 scale database size with pgbench and run pgbench
with 200+ connection of small virtual box to see same observation ?

Please let me know if I can help to know to reproduce this problem.
