I am running a
rabbitmq configuration between a client and a server. The client process opens a connection on the server at port 5672. Using
netstat -np on the server I confirm that since the socket reports ESTABLISHED.
The process on the client crashed and it doesn't exist anymore. But
netstat -np still shows the connection ESTABLISHED. I also run
netstat -np on the client and I confirm that no process has connection to the server on that port.
Why does the socket remains in ESTABLISHED status?
