Connection Reuse

MRF maintains a table of all existing connections on each TMM of a router instance. When a message is routed to a host, MRF will scan this table for an existing connection to the host that is available for use. If an available existing connection is not found, a new connection will be created.
There are many reasons that an existing connection may not be available for delivery of the current message (see the sub-sections below for details).
