I am planning to use pgbouncer. Help me with the configuration of pgbouncer. Do I have to increase max_connections in postgres.conf when we r configuring pg_bouncer? Help me with pgbouncer configuration or links that is very clear.

Don't open until needed, close when done. Assuming they're actually a problem--for smaller scale environments, it can be perfectly OK to have clients holding connections open for the entire client lifetime.
Set application name on connection, so that *if* there is a problem it's easier to track down.

Which could easily be a matter of some pg library being used. As far as I see, there was also never an answer to whether this is actually a problem and if so, how?
And one more: if there is a problem, why not use pgbouncer?
We've given all the information we can about how to identify such connections. Any further help would depend on more info from Rajesh.
