I observe the symptom that when I make a socket connection (any type of
connection, e.g. telnet, http, ....) to RS6000, it try to probe back the
machine initating the connection using ICMP message. The frequency is about
one probe per minute. Even the connection is dropped, the probe back message
still occurs but I haven't monitored how long it kept.
Our RS6000 is used as a web server. If there is thousands of connection,
there will be thousands of ICMP probe back per min. Will this cause a
serious performance problem for network? I have changed the value
tcp_keepintvl to higher value using command no but the interval is still not
Thank you very much.
