Is there a reasonably simple way to measure (at the OS level) that connection pooling is working? I'm expecting to see a number of connections being established and staying that way. I suppose I'm only interested in tcp connection establishment/closing.

netstat only seems to give me the complete list. Surely there must be some tool that is more suitable for this task?

This is on Windows XP/Linux.

You can use tcpview or Tcpvcon. Also you can run netstat -a -n -o | findstr YourProccessId in script that loops every second or so.
