How is your client connecting to the JBoss server?  RMI-IIOP?  SOAP?
XML-RPC?  How many connections are you dealing with -- 10,000
connections per second, or 2 per 5 seconds?  What kind of data is
being transmitted -- big/small?

How much faster is the Windows server?  (ie - The Linux server takes
10 seconds to do the same remote operation that takes 5 on Windows).

I'm assuming that you're working on 64-bit hardware (Opteron?).  Is
this correct?

Are you running IPv6?

What is the output of these commands (run as root):
uname -r
sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_tw_recycle
sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_keepalive_intvl
sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_fin_timeout
