Hi Vitaliy,

This ticket is apparently about the same issue:

What we think happens is that the load balancer removes its session that corresponds to the connection without closing the connection itself. Later on it tries to re-establish the connection with the same source port, but the Riak server seems to ignore the request, probably because it didn't close the old connection on its side.
