DESCRIPTION:

Received frequent alerts for connection timeout with journal node. Upon checking the connectivity, it results in below output.

curl -v http://123.example.com:8480--max-time 4 | tail -4 
* About to connect() to  123.example.com:8480  port 8480 (#0)

Checking netstat command further for port 8480 gives us huge number of CLOSE_WAIT messages.

[root@123 ~]# netstat -putane | grep -i 8480 
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:8480 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 72383 1586576877 1719/java

Check the meaning of CLOSE_WAIT here link

ROOT CAUSE:

It was found that an edits_in_progress file was stuck as an orphan file since last two months while the edits recorded in it are already captured in other completed edits file. Due to this, the port 8480 of the respective Journal node process was coming up in CLOSE_WAIT as the socket is not closed properly.

SOLUTION :

Removed the orphan edits_in_progress file and restarted journal nodes.
