Re: "Proxy reached system memory limit at sockets" after haproxy restart

Me again.

I got the error again and also haproxy did not forward any requests (No server available to handle your request).

Removed "option httpclose", restarted haproxy and everything works again (I thought).

After some time the error messages appear again? Any ideas where they come from?
