backups failing due to lack of file descriptors on client


Recommended Posts

One of my systems periodically gets into a state where it won't back up until I kill the retroclient process. Today I looked at it before killing it and found that it was out of file descriptors, because most connections were in CLOSE_WAIT state.


This system is set to sleep for power savings, and perhaps this is related, though I believe retroclient can request that sleep be deferred if a backup is in progress.


retroclient should be noticing that the server has closed its connection, and closing the local side, to avoid leaking file descriptors and eventually getting into this failing state.


The client version, as displayed in System Preferences, is 12.0.2 (116).
