We are using iPlanet 6.1 as web server. Our application works fine but some time in few months server calls a servlet instance in a loop and takes connections from connection pool and after it reaches maximum connection pool size server crashes. The error we get in server log is Error accepting connection -5928, oserr=130 (Connect aborted). I checked with the code there is no infinite loop anywhere. The control goes to an object where some database query excecuted and after that server again calls the same servlet instance with different thread number. Has anyone faced this issue with iPlanet server? If so please help me out with this outage issue. Thanks in advance Amit
Have you checked that your servlet code also releases the connections properly? We had some connection release problems here that did something similar, and it got traced back to the connection pool not getting connections back from the servlets.

Hi Thanks for your comments. I checked the connection its closed properly. But this problem is not with connection. Because servelt instance is getting called multiple times thats why multiple connections are created and when connection size is more then the pool max size it gives this exception. But my problem is why sometimes (It happened after 1 year this time) iPlanet server start calling the same servlet instance contiously in a loop ? Same code works fine everytime but once in a blue moon it crashes because of this problem. I checked the log file its clear that iPlanet is creating multiple threads for same servlet instance. Please advice. Thanks. Amit
