FreeBSD, enterprise open source stuff, network and system security. I'm by no means an expert software developer, but I've been using PHP since 1995 and can find the bathroom on my own. Bourne shell and awk since the 1980s. My Telebit Worldblazer and serial breakout box are still in good working order. :/

comment Support for virtual IPMI in a VM?
It would definitely depend on the virtualization environment you're using. A partitioning system like FreeBSD's "jails" or Solaris Zones/Containers or Linux vserver would not allow something like this to occur because they don't provide hardware virtualization, but a commercial product like VMWare might. Ask your vendor, perhaps?

unlimit doesn't address the OP's issue, since the cron job is running as root.

You can sysctl -a | less to see everything that you can tune or monitor with this tool.

sysctl fs.file-max=65536 looks like it might be what you want. At least, that's all I see when I sysctl -a | grep file-max in Debian.

comment How do I find out how PHP was installed
If you're going to compile it with different options, consider making a package of your version, so that it can be tracked in the future...
