As I understand it, there are two limits (for the file handles) in Linux
1. At a process level. This is controlled by
/etc/security/limits.conf file. I have set this to 64k
2. At the system level. This can be viewed at
Inspite of this configuration, I am running out of file handles. Other than monitoring the file
/proc/sys/fs/file-nr on a regular basis is there any other way to tell whether the cause of the failure is at process level or system level ?
