I find that running our Symbolics 3670 with Genera 8.0 for an
extended period of time without warm-booting it causes a buildup of
TCP connections; these are shown in Peek. Is there a patch to get
rid of old connections that are no longer in use?
I could reset the network and re-enable it as part of the
logout-initialization-list, but I'd rather have it as part of the
I have noticed that TCP connections to DYNIX (Sequent) hosts don't get
closed properly: They hang around in CLOSE-WAIT forever. This is a bad
thing because each connection hangs on to a packet buffer, the supply of
which eventually runs out. I have never seen the problem interopping
with any other TCP implementation.
