Event short description: time_wait_checker

This event, in case of failure, is generated when a possible ephemeral ports exhaustion is reached. This means that no more local TCP connections can be created because no more local ports are available.


time_wait_checker ensures the system does not run into a ephemeral ports exhaustion problem. It is fundamental to have ephemeral ports available so the system can work without any problem. To not have enough ephemeral ports available affects seriously the system rendering it unstable and unpredictable.
