One sftp filesystem keeps at most one idle connection open.
So it is like connection pool whose max size is one.

Now you have multiple threads accessing the same sftp server
but you would not like to have an idle connection open, right?

One possible direction to take would be to develop the pooling
mechanism (maybe use commons-pooling?) and give an option to the
sftp provider pooling=true|false.

Would this solve your problem?
