The problem with TCP connections is that when a network segment or a remote machine goes down, the notification of the
disconnection is forwarded to the upper layers of the TCP/IP stack after a certain time - the TCP timeout. Normally
this timeout is set to approximately 10 minutes. In this condition, software such as TUXEDO domain gateways may only
be notified after a long amount of time, possibly causing a disruption of service and delaying failover.
