is there any news on the rpc freeze problem?
What I still experience (v1.0.4):
Everything works fine using rpckeepalive=0 but there is another problem:
The performance (tx/s) decreases a lot when using rpckeepalive=0
I only get ~ 100 tx/s throughput when using rpckeepalive=0 (and rpcssl).
If I enable rpckeepalive I get ~800 tx/s (!)
But still the rpc api freezes after some time.
I think the problem only appears when using it together with rpcssl because every new requests has to open a new connection and has to do the ssl handshake all over again.
keepalive=0 has a really bad performance (at least when using rpcssl?)
keepalive=1 freezes the node on high load after no more than 30 seconds.
