In the head node of our cluster there are almost 20000 connections open on the port number 7625.
And all these are in TIME_WAIT state.
And on the port http, there are almost 10000 connections open and even all these are in TIME_WAIT state.
Why is this happening?
And when i try to ping a web address i am getting
ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted
Is this because of the above problem ? How do i solve this?
There is no packet loss or problem if i ping from other nodes on the cluster to any other nodes apart from the headnode. So clearly the problem is with the headnode. I tried restarting it still the same problem.
How do i solve this.
Thanks in advance
