I'm experimenting with lost connections between my java application and my mysql server.
The application and the server are on two different machines and I'm pulling the physical cord between the two.
netstat -plunta to find out the state of the connection and here is the weird part. I can see the connection in state ESTABLISHED for a very long time after I pull the cord. At least a couple of hours. Is that supposed to be so? When will a connection terminate when no packets can get through?
Both machines are running Linux/Ubuntu. One is 10.04 and one is 11.04.
