comment What is the impact of increasing “nofile” limits in /etc/security/limits.conf?
Ok, well for future reference for users, we increased to 32k and Jenkins is using them w/o issue during builds. I still don't fully understand what this limit is for or why the default is so low, but I haven't found the actual hardware limit yet.

BTW, when you say that there is "no software in existence" do you mean no modern operating systems?

I don't believe it's a leak since, after peaking, the open files count from lsof seems to drop back down to more modest numbers. Thanks for the feedback.

Excellent, thanks. I understood that these were limits, and I guess I was wondering what they were protecting against. We have a server hosting some very active apps that is pushing the 16k limit, so I wanted to check what would be the impact if we just let it continue to expand. I'll turn my attention to why we have so many darn files then. Thanks again.

The other answers were good advice for faster ways to diagnose the issue, but in the end IT did have a the port blocked. I gave the others +1 for the good info.

comment Linux user starts in wrong directory?
The option below leads me to believe the problem is that I logged in as user Y, and was in his home. Did some stuff from there and was looking to switch to user X with X's full profile. The -l flag provides the behavior I was expecting
