:I've been running 3 loops of mirroring wget -m on the apache manual,
:with the fetched page deleted in between, MaxClients=256,
:MaxKeepAliveRequests=0. There is one loop runned localy.
:There are more than 4000 connections in TIME_WAIT, more than 4000 sockets.
:The server responds very well and there are no delays.
:Tomorrow I will try MaxKeepAliveRequests to an impossibly high number to
:generate long running connections and see how it copes.
:I welcome suggestions on what test to run as I am no expert in neither
:os nor networking.
Have you adjusted the portrange? Do these:
You may also have to lower the MSL on the originating machines to reduce
the number of sockets being held in a TIME_WAIT state.
(default is 30000ms)
