Description

Name: js151677			Date: 08/05/2004


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.5.0-beta2"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0-beta2-b51)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0-beta2-b51, mixed mode, sharing)

ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]

EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
Network Adapter: Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
I have written an application to monitor the network connectivity of several servers by "pinging" them with InetAddress.isReachable() 10 times at 10 minute intervals. It runs without flaw for approximately 5 hours, but then I recieve a ConnectException for each server I am trying to "ping." Each server has its own thread (13 in all). After 5 hours, the exception occurrs on about 5 of the 10 ping attempts. The other 5 work fine.

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Start 13 threads at minimum priority.
Each of these thread's run methods should be an infinite loop which tests a server's reachability with the InetAddress.isReachable() method 10 times in a row and then sleeps for 10 minutes.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Application should run indefinitely without ever having any output.
ACTUAL -
An exception is thrown after executing my application for about 5 hours.

ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
java.net.ConnectException: An operation on a socket could not be performed because the system lacked sufficient buffer space or because a queue was full
	at java.net.Inet4AddressImpl.isReachable0(Native Method)
	at java.net.Inet4AddressImpl.isReachable(Inet4AddressImpl.java:52)
	at java.net.InetAddress.isReachable(InetAddress.java:418)
	at java.net.InetAddress.isReachable(InetAddress.java:377)
	at com.hca.utils.PingUtility$PingThread.run(PingUtility.java:438)

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.
