Sorry, I missed this issue.

TCP_USER_TIMEOUT is super useful! It helps a lot to detect when a server is down, especially when using keep alive: at kernel level (TCP keepalive) or application level (ex: RabbitMQ heart beat).

Linux default timeout is more something like 15 minutes. A few years ago, it was longer than 2 days :-)
