I'm experiencing issues with the number of files opened increasing over time. If I run my server for about few hours, it'll no more accept any connections. The limit was 1024. I've increased the limit to about 40,000 and still the number is going up everyday and it's just a matter of time until the server stop accepting connections.
is it normal number of open files keep increasing until i restart the server ? and what are the possible scenarios that may cause that problem ?
