Re: eventlet weirdness


It seems that there used to be a db_pool in session.py but got removed
by this commit.


due to this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/838581

But still I'm confused by the discussion. Are we saying eventlet +
sqlalchemy + mysql pool is buggy so instead we make every DB call a
blocking call? Thanks,
