TCP SO_LINGER 选项对Socket.close的影响


  • Socket.setSoLinger(false, linger)

设置为false,这时linger值被忽略。摘自unix network programming:

The default action of close with a TCP socket is to mark the socket as closed and return to the process immediately. The socket descriptor is on longer usable by the process: it can’t be used as an argument to read or write. TCP will try to send any data that is already queued to be sent to the other end, and after this occurs, the normal TCP connection termination sequence takes place.


我们可以写个演示程序,客户端发送较大的数据包后,立刻调用close,而server端将Receive Buffer设置的很小。close会立即返回,客户端的Java进程结束,但是当我们用tcpdump/Wireshark抓包会发现,操作系统正在帮你发送数据,内核缓冲区中的数据发送完毕后,发送FIN包关闭连接。

  • Socket.setSoLinger(true, 0)

TCP discards any data still remaining in the socket send buffer and sends an RST to the peer, not the normal four-packet connection termination sequence.

主动调用close的一方也是立刻返回,但是这时TCP会丢弃发送缓冲中的数据,而且不是按照正常流程关闭连接(不发送FIN包),直接发送RST,对端会收到 Connection reset异常。同样使用tcpdump抓包可以很容易观察到。


If the a client of your server application misbehaves (times out, returns invalid data, etc.) an abortive close makes sense to avoid being stuck in CLOSE_WAIT or ending up in the TIME_WAIT state.

  • If you must restart your server application which currently has thousands of client connections you might consider setting this socket option to avoid thousands of server sockets in TIME_WAIT (when calling close() from the server end) as this might prevent the server from getting available ports for new client connections after being restarted.
  • On page 202 in the aforementioned book it specifically says: “There are certain circumstances which warrant using this feature to send an abortive close. One example is an RS-232 terminal server, which might hang forever in CLOSE_WAIT trying to deliver data to a stuck terminal port, but would properly reset the stuck port if it got an RST to discard the pending data.”
  • Socket.setSoLinger(true, linger > 0)

if there is any data still remaining in the socket send buffer, the process will sleep when calling close() until either all the data is sent and acknowledged by the peer or the configured linger timer expires. if the linger time expires before the remaining data is sent and acknowledged, close returns EWOULDBLOCK and any remaining data in the send buffer is discarded.


  1. 数据发送完毕,收到对方的ACK,然后进行连接的正常关闭(交换FIN-ACK)
  2. 超时,未发送完成的数据被丢弃,连接发送RST进行非正常关闭

类似的我们也可以构造demo观察这种场景。客户端发送较大的数据包,server端将Receive Buffer设置的很小。设置linger为1,调用close时等待1秒。注意SO_LINGER的单位为,好多人被坑过。假设close后1秒内缓冲区中的数据发送不完,使用tcpdump/Wireshark可以观察到客户端发送RST包,服务端收到 Connection reset异常。
