    We use HttpClient to connect to remote host from tomcat server. This application at some point create 1000+ connections and then it keeps them in CLOSE_WAIT. Is there a way to limit them or is there be a better way of dealing with this.

    It would take me a while to find a fix, as I've not mastered IP routing, but I think you might want to look for documentation on iptables. There should be a section on which connections remain open, and which ones close immediately.
