EAM database active connections

EAM/Agents/XXXX/Metrics/Database/Active Connections tag is always Zero. Regardless of the count or current status.
Gateway version 8.1.7 Enterprise Administration Module

Is this a bug? Had this worked in pervious versions? Our Agent versions range from 8.0.15 to 8.1.7. None fill this tag value.

It would be nice to see when a database connection drops through the EAM. Perhaps a Active Connections versus Total Database Connections should be added along with other EAM features.
