Question

How can I determine the current number of active connections that a distributing stack has routed to a target stack?

Answer

To determine the current number of active connections that a distributing stack has routed to a target stack, issue this command:

NETSTAT VDPT DETAIL

The report field ActConn indicates the current number of active connections for a target TCP/IP. This count is incremented by the distributing TCP/IP when one of the following occurs:

  • A connection request is forwarded by the distributing TCP/IP to that target.

  • The distributing TCP/IP is informed that the target has initiated a TCP connection using this DVIPA as a source IP address.

The active connections include all TCP connections that the target TCP/IP stack is still aware of, even if the connections are in the process of terminating. For example, connections in FIN_WAIT2 or TIMEWAIT states are also included in this count.
