I have driven crazy with linux and his broken tcp sockets closing timeouts -
sockets hung in CLOSE state.I have problem with apache(1.2bx),bind 4.9.5.P-1
(4.9.4.P-1 works fine),squid 1.1.1-5. All this programs make occasionally
sockets hung in CLOSE state.Squid release this sockets after many hours,
but other programs - not - sockets are hung forever(until program restarts).
I have many many many problems with this(e.g. shortage of file descriptors
high CPU and memory utilization).I have tried linux 2.0.26 and 2.0.27.Where
Maybe FreeBSD are free of this problem?:)
