Maximal number of timewait sockets held by system simultaneously. If this number is exceeded TIME_WAIT socket is immediately destroyed and warning is printed. This limit exists only to prevent simple DoS attacks, you must not lower the limit artificially, but rather increase it (probably, after increasing installed memory), if network conditions require more than default value (180000).
