[erlang-questions] What the reason for connection closed error message.?

Just a thought… 

1. Check your interface for errors (e.g. collisions etc.)
This usually happens when your local ethernet interface and adjacent switch have different configuration (e.g. one is configured to be half-duplex, and another as full-duplex).
In this case, as the  traffic increases, a number of errors (e.g. collisions) on the interface increases as well, thus causing nodes to get disconnected.

2. Check the disk I/O. 
Sometimes, excessive disk I/O operations may cause "uninterruptible sleep". When this happens, your CPU is prevented from doing anything else but wait for disk.
If this is the case, start your run-time (where excessive disk I/O is taking place) with +A attribute (this will increase a number of threads responsible for disk I/O).

Kind regards

A SNMP agent is running in the server node and I have a GUI through which I can access all the nodes in the distributed system. The SNMP query will be landing in the server node and which further does rpc to the specific client node and serve the query.

The physical connection is intact and there is no ping break between the nodes.
