Subject: Re: [PATCH] tcp: accept socket after TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT period

Julian Anastasov a écrit :
> 	Willy Tarreau and many other folks in recent years
> were concerned what happens when the TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT period
> expires for clients which sent ACK packet. They prefer clients
> that actively resend ACK on our SYN-ACK retransmissions to be
> converted from open requests to sockets and queued to the
> listener for accepting after the deferring period is finished.
> Then application server can decide to wait longer for data
> or to properly terminate the connection with FIN if read()
> returns EAGAIN which is an indication for accepting after
> the deferring period. This change still can have side effects
> for applications that expect always to see data on the accepted
> socket. Others can be prepared to work in both modes (with or
> without TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT period) and their data processing can
> ignore the read=EAGAIN notification and to allocate resources for
> clients which proved to have no data to send during the deferring
> period. OTOH, servers that use TCP_DEFER_ACCEPT=1 as flag (not
> as a timeout) to wait for data will notice clients that didn't
> send data for 3 seconds but that still resend ACKs.
