What did you do?

Unfortunately, I can't share the code. The idea is simple: perform lots of concurrent requests on a loop until you get the error.

What did you expect to see?

I expect to not see errors related to TCP or network.

What did you see instead?

dial tcp: lookup "example.com": no such host

We are going to need a test case. This clearly doesn't happen normally. If the idea is simple, can you write a simple test?

Macs have very low default fd limits. And we use cgo by default on Darwin. (Which might change in 1.8)

This is almost certainly a fd exhaustion problem. The real question is why the error message sucks.

It's pretty clear the error message came from the host C library saying there was no such host. I don't think we have control over that. Maybe #16345 will fix this but I'm not holding my breath.

Closing as dup of #16345 or else not enough information.
