close_wait connections causing a server to hung

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if anyone of you have been in a situation where you end up having around 100 close_wait connections and seems to me those connections are locking up resources/processes in the server so unless the server is rebooted those processes won't be released by the close_wait connections. Is there anything that can be done to remove them therefore avoiding rebooting the server. Thanks.

Searching before posting may be helpful - and if you post, post what OS and version you are using.

Found the following by searching: clear close_wait status

I did search beforehand. Maybe I should've said .I checked the results of the search and didn't answer my question. I wonder if thos close_wait connection can be removed on the fly without rebooting the server. We are ruuning AIX 5.3 kernel 64 bits. Thanks.

So, you just happened to miss this post which states using the rmsock command in AIX to remove close_wait connections?

See the rmsock man page for more info.
