Subject RE: Handling requests when under load - ACCEPT and RST vs non-ACCEPT
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2012 03:18:29 GMT

To reiterate what Christopher said, if you close the listening socket
because you think you can't service one extra client, you will lose all the
connections on the backlog queue, which could be hundreds of clients, that
you *can* service.

In addition, those clients will then get exactly the behaviour that you are
complaining about: a successful connection and then a 'connection reset'
when doing I/O.

Note also that you cannot know how long the backlog queue is, nor how many
clients are already in it.

There is no possibility of this proposal being accepted.
