    Default Time out SSH, SMTP, HTTP

    Hi Forum,

    I have this problem.... we installed ZCS on Debian Etch and it's working fine we have a Shorwall installed.

    We are facing a problem that zimbra is not always online it is giving us a timeout i have been monitoring it with Nagios and the strange thing is that i can't find any strange things in the log files of the system neither the zimbra log files.

    Does anyone have been facing the same problem?

    Please give me some suggestions to examine this problem i am new to ZCS so please be patient and excuse me for my poor English.

    Best regards,

    Jesse

    Is this Zimbra Desktop or Zimbra Collaboration Suite (as you've posted in the Desktop forum)?

    Might be a network adapter/networking thing...

    Hi interways,

    Thanks for the fast answer!

    I found this in my kernel.log

    Apr 29 15:53:18 zimbra kernel: device eth0 entered promiscuous mode
    Apr 29 15:53:18 zimbra kernel: audit(1241013198.061:2): dev=eth0 prom=256 old_prom=0 auid=4294967295


    Does this explain anything to you ?

    Best regards.

    Jesse

    Should be no problem.
    Anything in the logs relating to the exact time and date of the problem?

    I am smelling a firewall problem but the strange thing is that even with the firewall off the problem does exist !

    Hi there,

    I'm facing the same problem right now, I'll try to give as much valuable informations as I can.

    This is a fresh (1 month) installed server.

    * OS: CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
    * Zimbra: Release 6.0.8_GA_2661.RHEL5_20100820021155 CentOS5 NETWORK edition.
    * no iptables installed

    Every few minutes the Nagios server goes wild and warns me that some Zimbra services are down.

    - Tests with telnet from the client to any zimbra port confirm the issue.
    - The problem lasts for like 1 minute and then goes back to normal.
    - Only the client suffers from non responsive server.
    - Other hosts in the same LAN can access without any problem (unless I try to connect too often).

    tcpdump on zimbra server of the problem (port 110)
    Code:
    [root@zimbra log]# tcpdump port 110
    tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode
    listening on eth0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes
    11:48:17.775082 IP nagios.domain.tld.58137 > zimbra.domain.tld.pop3: S 2582162921:2582162921(0) win 5840 <mss 1380,sackOK,timestamp 661513095 0,nop,wscale 6>
    11:48:20.771473 IP nagios.domain.tld.58137 > zimbra.domain.tld.pop3: S 2582162921:2582162921(0) win 5840 <mss 1380,sackOK,timestamp 661513845 0,nop,wscale 6>
    11:48:26.770916 IP nagios.domain.tld.58137 > zimbra.domain.tld.pop3: S 2582162921:2582162921(0) win 5840 <mss 1380,sackOK,timestamp 661515345 0,nop,wscale 6>
    This proves that Zimbra is receiving the packets but does not transfer them to the service because nothing changes in file /opt/zimbra/log/mailbox.log

    Don't know what's going on here.

    I suspect Zimbra to block access from clients if too many connections are made, (or maybe too many opened connection at the same time?)

    Some advice is needed. I would like to monitor my server without being waken up at night for nothing :P

    OK I think I figured it out.

    I edited some sysctl values and it looks like it messes up the network stability.

    My advice: do not touch net.ipv4.tcp_tw_reuse or net.ipv4.tcp_tw_recycle as mentionned here:
    Performance Tuning Guidelines for Large Deployments - Zimbra :: Wiki (unless you know what you're doing).
