Opening lots and lots of files under Linux

One thought on “Opening lots and lots of files under Linux”

    Fust as an FYI for people reading this, that setting also effects the number of open socket connections the OS will allow. If you are running something with a large number of concurrent connections (say, a chat server) you can into the same problem. The error message reported will generally be something like “too many open files”, a bit of a misnomer for sockets. Have fun!
