comment Increasing the maximum amount of open files for libvirt
I found a solution for this problem. serverfault.com/questions/20387/debian-too-many-open-files The second answer, from Janning, explains the solution. By adding ulimit commands to /etc/defaults/libvirt-bin I was able to increase the limit for open files.

comment Increasing the maximum amount of open files for libvirt
Thank you for the response. But this is set to 384180 by default, so I do not think this is the limitation. I've also tried running simple scripts creating a large number of files, and these are able to create as many files as the soft limit dictates. I believe my problem is the soft limit within the libvirtd process, but I don't know how to change this.
