Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 net-next 0/2] tcp/dccp: better use of ephemeral ports

From: Eric Dumazet <>
Date: Thu, 11 Feb 2016 16:28:48 -0800

> Big servers have bloated bind table, making very hard to succeed
> ephemeral port allocations, without special containers/namespace tricks.
> This patch series extends the strategy added in commit 07f4c90062f8 
> ("tcp/dccp: try to not exhaust ip_local_port_range in connect()").
> Since ports used by connect() are much likely to be shared among them,
> we give a hint to both bind() and connect() to keep the crowds separated

> Of course, if on a specific host an application needs to allocate ~30000
> ports using bind(), it will still be able to do so. Same for ~30000 connect()
> to a unique 2-tuple (dst addr, dst port)
> New implemetation is also more friendly to softirqs and reschedules.
> v2: rebase after TCP SO_REUSEPORT changes

Series applied, thanks.
