ulimit -n in bea environment shows how many files+connections it can use.
you can double that with smitty on and on.

can you see connection status in your lsof?
are they ESTABLISHED or in some other state?
"no" command can reduce damage from those half-connections also.

gheist,
Thanks or a quick reply, Yes I see most of them in ESTABLISHED and some in WAIT state. NowI dont know why there are so many sockets open(TCP connections) is there any way to limit the connection count.
Thank

How can open TCP connections crash an application? Do you get error messages pointing in that direction?
What's in the errorlog?
Does netstat -m show failed mallocs? Clear the statistics with netstat -Zm and check what's going on.

You have to provide substantial logs from application crash - what crashed - java or webserver inside java?

Only reason why I am so concerned abt the TCP connections is that when ever TCP  connections are increasing exponentiallys the app crashes

There is no logs for java crashing.
There should be core file.

The relation might as well be inverse - a bug in the application causes the number of connections to increase, finally the same bug causes the app. to crash.
