Some questions about exceptions

Hi,

I have some questions about exceptions and their influence on test results.

For example, does java.net.SocketException: Too many open files or java.net.SocketException: Too many open files in system
mark request as failed?

For example, does java.net.SocketException: Too many open files or java.net.SocketException:
Too many open files in system
mark request as failed?

Absolutely

3. java.net.ConnectException

While 1 & 2 is obvious, the 3rd does not tell what happened.
What can be the reason for this exception?

Honestly, no idea. Did you check stacktraces in your logs (you might have
to enable WARN level)?
