My 2 cents CDN:
I just gleaned at the code and must have missed the "randomness"
in the drops. Infact i have never had the chance to look at netfilter (one
of these days), so pardon my ignorance:
Would you please explain your algorithm (in english)?
Could unreplied connections also be in the (TCP) established state as
well? In which case i think LRU is wrong unless your aging timer is
somewhow associated with the connections RTT ( i suspect it is,
but just in case). Think of high latency links (like most wireless or
satellite, or even modems). Latency gets worse under duress. You need to
favor already established connections more.
