Part III: Appendixes > Further Advice, Hints, and Remarks

C.6. Further Advice, Hints, and Remarks

This section covers a variety of topics, starting with various TCP timers, that do not relate to previously mentioned issues. The second subsection throws a quick glance at some erratic behavior. The final subsection looks at a variety of parameters that deal with the reservation of resources.

C.6.1. Common TCP Timers

This section covers three important TCP timers. First I will have a look at the keep-alive timer. This timer is rather controversial, and some versions of Solaris implement it incorrectly. The next parameter limits the twice maximum segment lifetime (2MSL) value, which is connected to the time a socket spends in the TCP state TIME_WAIT. The final entry looks at the time spend in the TCP state FIN_WAIT_2.
