I’m using nginx as reverse proxy, and find more than 30k TIME_WAIT state
ports in upstream server. I know my servers are “out of ports” which
discussed here(lots of connections on TIME_WAIT state),
and set both nginx and upstream server to reuse TIME_WAIT and to
recycle more quickly.
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 1024 65000
net.ipv4.tcp_tw_recycle = 1
net.ipv4.tcp_tw_reuse = 1
But nginx hangs and “connection timed out while connection to upstream
server” error still can be found on nginx error log, when RPS of
upstream is higher than 1000 within 1 minutes. When upstream is Windows,
server will be “out of ports” in seconds.
Any ideas? A connection pool with a waiting queue? Maxim D. wrote a
useful module to keep connection with memcached, but why can’t it
support Web Server?
