44.3.5 Sending FINs

Some of the connection vectors have an explicit FIN ADU included (bytes == 0). If a connection vector does not have an explicit FIN, Tmix will add one upon reading in the connection vector. The default is that the last side (initiator or acceptor) to send an ADU will send the FIN 1 second after sending its last ADU. This time can be configured using the set-fin-time command. Changing this parameter will affect the TCP dynamics, number of active connections, memory, and running time, but will not affect the throughput or offered load of the simulation.
