I’m going through the tools and running them on a Replica Set with three nodes I have running on a three node kubernetes cluster.

In the lecture there are five current connections whereas on my Replica Set there are 34. Is there any way to identify why there is such a big difference? Also how are the number of current connections related to the maintenance of the Replica Set as in how many are normally required?
