Subject Re: High ingest rate and FIN_WAIT1 problems
Date Mon, 19 Jul 2010 09:13:48 GMT
Thanks for the response, but my problem is not with FIN_WAIT2, it
is with FIN_WAIT1.

If it was FIN_WAIT2, the only concern would be socket leakage,
and if  setting the time out solved the issue, that would be great.

The problem with FIN_WAIT1 is twofold - first, it is incumbent on
the application to notice and handle this problem; from the TCP stack
point of view, there is nothing wrong.  It is just a special case of slow
consumer.  The other problem is that it implies that something will be
lost if the socket is abandoned, there is data in the send queue of the
socket in FIN_WAIT1 that has not yet been delivered to the peer.
