This is very interesting, and nobody answered probably because no one
tried tcp_tw_recycle. I personally didn't even know about that config
until a few minutes ago ;)

So from the varnish mailing list, it seems that machines behind
firewalls or NAT won't play well with that config, but I don't expect
anyone running a cluster with that kind of setup... unless they are
doing cross-DC or whatnot.

Good stuff!

to true. This worked like a charm. The number of sockets in TIME_WAIT went down from many
thousands to just a couple (tens). Apparently, once set to true, the recycling happens quite
eagerly. Most importantly, the regionservers no longer shut down (which was the goal). I am
sharing the info here, just in case it might help someone sometime.
