Under 2.6 I would like to adjust the specific TCP parameters
that control the speed at which connections time out between
client and server when the connection is lost (i.e. comm
line drops out). I've adjusted tcp_keepalive_interval to 10
secs and this helped alot (timeouts from hours to minutes).
I think what needs to be adjusted for our app are the number
of retries and the time delay between retries, but I am not
sure of their names or how they are adjusted (via ndd?)
This app was migrated from SunOS to Solaris and actually
used to modify the SunOS TCP header files with the
appropriate values and rebuild the SunOS kernel. The lack of
CM and the fact that nobody can remember the values or wrote
them down is causing us to try and figure it all out again.
Thanks in advance for the help
