Instant Messaging Server - Unexpected Close_wait Connections (Doc ID 1441133.1)

Last updated on JUNE 03, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Instant Messaging Server - Version 8.0 to 8.0 [Release 8.0.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : Instant Messaging (IM) 8.0 version, (before patch 139893-03).

We see an increase of network connections which are not closed but in the CLOSE_WAIT state. The expectation is that network connections should be closed when session is finished.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Install IM8u2 (139893-02).
  2. Make sure watchdog is enabled (which is default), check iim.conf file.
  3. Just start the Instant Messaging server and wait.

This issue has no direct impact but servers might exceed the resource limitation.
