No buffer space available (maximum connections reached?): connect


I wanted to know if anyone has seen the following error message pertaining to event sources “No buffer space available (maximum connections reached?): connect” After performing test it doesn’t seem like the dynamic ports are exhausted.

Does anyone have a solution to correct this problem?

Hi @dmiddlebrooks , typically the issue here is related to your collector host machine running out of file descriptors (FDs).

I took a look at your collector and I can see that it is maxing out at about 30,000 open FDs

If you reboot the host machine it should return to normal.

(Removed previous link - doesn’t appear key to be present on windows server)


Thanks, after the reboot the machine has returned back to normal.
