If you do a bit of google search, you can see that there's currently
two opened issues regarding CLOSE_WAIT:
- If you have ChecklsumExceptions, this will generate thousands of
opened sockets: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2042
- It was also discussed in this jira, also no resolution regarding
I'd say you should have a look at the region server log and look for
any suspicious exceptions.
Also, "closing" the HTables doesn't release any resource, so this
probably has no effect on your issue.

We are using hbase-0.20.6 with hdfs (single node setup), while pushing
the data into hbase, using java API's, there are lots of TCP CLOSE_WAIT
connection crops up. These connections persist for a long time, even for day
or two. Linux setting for TCP connection is 72 sec. which are overridden by
hbase java API. Hbase API connection with hdfs data-anode persist with
CLOSE_WAIT (We are closing all tables after the operation but this is
showing in netstat command). Anybody having some idea about this problem?
