Openvz kernel: [10186978.064405] TCP: time wait bucket table overflow (CT3)

kernel: [10186978.064405] TCP: time wait bucket table overflow (CT3)

Varying opinions are out there but in general it seems like the most common culprit is a lack of privvmpages, with a modern OpenVZ system the best way is to set privvmpages as equal to what your RAM is and this has resolved the messages on another system.

If it's truly a TCP issue you can adjust the following parameters:

Source: Openvz forums

1) Per-system tw_count is greater than per-system max_tw_buckets limit:
tw_count < sysctl_max_tw_buckets
net.ipv4.tcp_max_tw_buckets = 1800000
IMHO very unlikely in your situation

2) Per-VE counter is greater than per-VE max_tw_buckets limit:
tw_count < sysctl_tcp_max_tw_buckets_ub
net.ipv4.tcp_max_tw_buckets_ub = 165360
