I have a game server which runs with TCP connections. Server disconnects users randomly. I have been looking into this for months. I think its related with TCP settings of server.
In local development environment written code can handle 8000+ concurrent users without any disconnection or error (at localhost).
But in real deployed Centos 5 64bit Server, server creating these disconnections independent from concurrent tcp connection amount.
Server seems to be not able to handle throughput.

What make me thinking is these seems to be very problematic.
123034 connections reset due to unexpected data 91876 connections reset due to early user close 28736 times unabled to send RST due to no memory
How can i fix these errors? Do i need to make TCP tuning?
