We are in the process of evaluating upgrading to 1.9.8 from 1.8.17, and we are seeing a roughly 70% increase in sockets in TIME_WAIT on our haproxy servers with a mostly idle server cluster $ sudo netstat | grep 'TIME_WAIT' | wc -l
Looking at the source/destination of this it seems likely that this comes from healthchecks. We also see a corresponding load increase on the backend applications serving the healthchecks. Checking the git logs for healthcheck was unfruitful. Any clue what might be going on? Thanks, Dave.
