Hai all..

This might not be the proper place to ask this question.. still I know there are unlimited trained brains in this forum..

Question :
In my cpanel server I am getting a lot of connection from google Ip.
netstat -an|awk '/tcp/ {print $6}'|sort|uniq -c
1 CLOSE_WAIT
2 CLOSING
26 ESTABLISHED
10 FIN_WAIT1
1 FIN_WAIT2
39 LISTEN
9 SYN_RECV
1 SYN_SENT
1241 TIME_WAIT
=================================
Tried to grep the google Ip like below :
netstat -ntu | grep google_IP_here | wc -l
1267
Y does google have such a large number of connection to my server ?
=================================


Y does this all go to time wait?
1 ) I have disabled FIREWALL
2) its not blocked in host file.

Any idea about this strange case ??

Not all ESTABLISHED, but yes, we see it on our servers quite often. It's a real pain especially when you have many different domains on the same server and big G in it's infinite wisdom decides to crawl them all at once. (Sure, just one or two threads per site, but on 500 domains all running MySQL it can get pretty intense).
