comment Practical ulimits
@AaronCopley I didn't post this, but earlier in the strace log it does just that and pulls down root's NOFILE limit, which is a much more standard {rlim_cur=1024, rlim_max=4*1024}). This isn't going to be a quick thing to find! If this app needs over a million handles, we have problems anyway.

@AaronCopley I've done some testing, and got an audit-log out of it. Looks like a pam session-start is somehow failing.

@AaronCopley We have a STIG-like hardened environment. Pam/audit problems are entirely possible. Will try hand-edits tomorrow.

@AaronCopley I had to back out the change so I don't have a live example at the moment, but the fact as it existed in limits.conf was 85% of the number in file-max. I DO know that the only nofile lines in there are set by puppet, and the user-specific one is the only one getting input.

@extrem Unfortunately, I don't know. All of my work is between known endpoints, I haven't had to get familiar with the more sophisticated network monitors.
