Breakout Session

What is Happening with My Connections? Why Are They Closed?

Violeta Georgieva, Staff Engineer, VMware

Connecting to remote systems is a requirement for every modern application. One of the problems with remote connections is they might be prematurely closed without enough details to understand what has happened and how to prevent it.

This session focuses on:

  • Some common problems that lead to prematurely closed connections, such as bad timeout configurations, missing connection pool settings, and so on
  • Useful tricks for debugging such issues using proper metrics and tracing features
  • Issue prevention with suggestions for tuning the configurations

The proposed techniques will be demonstrated using Spring WebClient.
