If the Sonic queues are backed up, the commands in this document display how many connections are IN_USE and how many connections are in TIME_WAIT status. If the number of connections in TIME_WAIT status is extremely high (for example 1000), contact the Cisco Support Team.
Note: The TIME_WAIT status is a state into which all the TCP connections enter when the connection is closed. The TIME_WAIT state is used to handle problems that can occur in the network, related to unreliable or delayed packet delivery. Accordingly, TCP holds connections for a temporary waiting period (TIME_WAIT) to ensure that any delayed packets are caught and not treated as new connection requests.
To find the number of Sonic connections in TIME_WAIT status, issue either of these commands:
