TCP_NODELAY is still usefull and has a noticeable improvement in
responsiveness. SO_RCVBUF=3D8192 and SO_SNDBUF=3D8192 are outdated and
actually make things worse if running with a 2.6 kernel (they do help if
running on a 2.4 kernel). But I too, am sure changing these will not
fix your problem (but probably will improve network performance).

How are you killing the open files? With "kill -9"? I kill locked,
open files by finding the pid with lsof and then close it with "sudo
kill -9 pidnumber". I've never had kill -9 fail me and I imagine you
would have to have serious kernel problems if kill -9 failed to kill a
pid.3

I've seen written here many times that the TCP options are old/no longer
needed. Not that I expect that removing them will fix anything.

Seems to me you have an awful lot things defined specifically there. I
don't know how those relate to the defaults. Or is that testparm -v
output?
