I require more than 1024 clients to be connected to a single redis instance at once. My redis process runs as user ubuntu. I have edited /etc/security/limits.conf to specify:
ubuntu soft nofile 65535 ubuntu hard nofile 65535
I have also ensured that the maxclients parameter in redis.conf is commented out.
What other steps must I take to ensure more than 1024 clients can connect to my redis instance, or is that all?
Edit on August 2014: See this SO question for the steps you will need to do to get this working on Ubuntu 2014.04 LTS:
