Subject PoolingHttpClientConnectionManager is not reusing connection
Date Mon, 13 Jan 2014 18:17:25 GMT
I am using HttpClient 4.3.1. 

Using HttpClient with PoolingHttpClientConnectionManager as the
connection manager. I have also set MaxTotal as 5000 and MaxPerRoute as
4000. When I am load testing it, I notice that when a connection is created,
it is leased from the pool and when the POST message execute() is done, it
does NOT put the connection back into ConnectionPool's available queue. 

This causes new connection for every request and overtime all my ephemeral
client ports are exhausted. 

Code Snippet:
Registry<ConnectionSocketFactory> socketFactoryRegistry = RegistryBuilder
                .<ConnectionSocketFactory> create()
                .register("https", sslConnectionSocketFactory)
                .register("http", PlainConnectionSocketFactory.INSTANCE)
        pollingConnectionManager = new

       RequestConfig defaultRequestConfig = RequestConfig.custom().build();
        httpClient = HttpClients.custom()

        HttpPost httpPost = new HttpPost(contactUri);
        ByteArrayEntity entity = new ByteArrayEntity(data);
        httpPost.setHeader("Content-Type", "application/json");
        CloseableHttpResponse response = null;
        try {
            response = httpClient.execute(httpPost, new BasicHttpContext());
        } catch (HttpResponseException ex) {
            logger.debug("Error while notifying to external service,
statuscode {}, Exception {}", ex.getStatusCode(), 
        } catch (ClientProtocolException e) {
            logger.error("Exception while notifying to {}, Exception :
{}",contactUri, Throwables.getStackTraceAsString(e));
        } catch (Exception e) {
           logger.error("Exception while notifying to {}, Exception :
{}",contactUri, Throwables.getStackTraceAsString(e));
    } finally {
            if (response != null) {
                try {
                } catch (IOException e) {
                    // Log it

In HttpClient, MainClientExec class, I see this code 
         if (entity == null || !entity.isStreaming()) {
                // connection not needed and (assumed to be) in re-usable
                return Proxies.enhanceResponse(response, null);
           } else {
                return Proxies.enhanceResponse(response, connHolder);

I see that entity.isStreaming() always returns true, and the connection is
never released.

Any help in this issue would be much appreciated.
