Subject Severe Socket Exception / Invalid argument
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2006 14:33:22 GMT

Browsing the internet and searching this mailinglist, I found several
posts from people having the same problem, but nowhere an explanation to
it. Besides the hope to find any answers, I'd like to add some
informations from my side.

As other users, from time to time I find following entries in my
catalina.out, and as they are "SEVERE" my customer is concerned:

SEVERE: Remote Host /<ip-addr> SocketException: Invalid argument

All I'd like is to understand this message, or what might lead to it!


- Tomcat 5.0.28
- Java 1.4.2-4.p8
- OS: Compaq Tru64 UNIX V5.1B (Rev. 2650)

Additional Informations:

- Tomcat seems be not affected in a bad way after this messages.
- The usage of the application running on the tomcat does not seem to
have a direct impact on the amount of messages showing up.
- Hundreds of people are working with the application, but no reactions
from their side so far.

Just by the way:

- Weird coincidence: The same tomocat/java instance, is not able to run
for longer periods. After +/- 3 days and tenthousands of hits the java
process seems to hang and tomcat gives no answer what so ever to any
requests anymore. The process has to be killed. No big issue as this is
a intranet application and may be restarted every night. Anyway, just

Greetings from Switzerland and sorry my english ;-)
