Thanks.

So it looks as if you have a massive backlog of requests waiting in the
RPC layer to get sent. That would indeed trigger the BDI congestion
control stuff, and prevent you from sending more requests. The
interesting bit is this:

There is only one request on the 'pending' queue. That would usually
indicate that the connection to the server is down. Can you check using
"netstat -t" whether or not there is a connection in the 'ESTABLISHED'
state to the server? Please also repeat the command a couple of times in
order to see if the socket/port number on the connection changes.

Cheers
