|Summary||0000251: Possible non-closing of connections, Router stall|
First of all, sorry for my English, I'll try to explain the best I can.
Running aMule with 200 max connections and 5 max connections every 5 seconds causes my router to stall every 12h
(more or less). One may think it's a matter of my router that just
can't handle all the connections. The thing is that it is a D-Link 504T, which is a Linux based router. I investigated further and I
discovered that accessing this router from telnet and doing a:
echo 2048 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_conntrack_max (1024 by default)
this doubles the time it tooks the router to crash (24h, 1 day more or less). So I just double the NAT table size and... (!) what suspicious (!) It's ok, after 24h the router crashes. I manage to
"unstall" it in two differents ways: a) closing amule b) increasing
the ip_conntrack_max to 2500, waha?!?
MLDonkey works just fine with this values (all the time). I believe
aMule could be flooding my router by non closing connections that acumulate and eventually become too much.

|Fixed in Revision|
|Might be related to a but I introduced on rc8. Can you try current CVS version?|
|Sure! I'll try to test CVS if I get some time.|
By the way (on my D-link ADSL Linux router):
cat ip_conntrack | grep "tcp" -c
1950 <= O_o wow!
cat ip_conntrack | grep "CLOSE_WAIT" -c
1467 <= O_O wowow!
I managed to stabilize my router by setting aggressive close_wait
echo 120 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close_wait
3 days running flawlessly. Is it expectable that aMule creates such massive
amount of close_wait state connections?
|No, it is not. Must be a bug I also have.|
|AFICS, when Xaignar disabled the retries code, this got fixed :)|
