That's a huge number of close-wait connections. Something's wrong.
Generally, there are two things that can cause that sort of problem:
1. Application bug. Close-wait state means that the peer has closed
the connection (sent FIN), but the local application has not yet
closed its end of the socket. That can happen by accident if the
application forks and fails to close unwanted file descriptors in
2. OS bug. There've been some bugs that cause connections to be
stuck in close-wait.
Either way, I strongly suggest contacting Sun's support group.
