    Lots of (network) file descriptors on Linux

    Mike Finn Apprentice

      Our production environment (JBoss 3.2.1 on RH 7.2) has a ton of FDs open - specifically network connections. lsof shows 265,000 IPv4 descriptors open, and it grows every day. Our server has been up for about 2 weeks.

      Almost all of these connections are something connecting to/from HSQL port. We do use HSQL for clustering and JMS persistence.

      The number just seems very high, and I am pretty sure the server will soon puke once the OS can't open any more FDs.

      Any ideas?
