Re: How to test how many connections are being reset by RST pack

said by Movieman420:

Q to JW...does this script count all rst's or just the forged sandvine rsts??
The script counts them all, but on a "clean" (non-Sandvine) line, there should be very, very few (0% to 1%?). The RST is designed to close improperly half-open TCP connections. They generally only occur when one side or the other has closed the connection without going through the "FIN" final handshake. (This usually only happens when one side or the other spontaneously reboots).
