File Descriptors - How to raise the limit?
I was looking into the "Errno:24" (Too many open files) today and discovered that my "open files" setting was set at 1024. The Linux 1024 default setting seems somewhat reasonable. And we didn't notice this until our warehouse inventory grew to a fairly sizeable chunk.
The command that I used to displayed the settings is "ulimit -a"
Does anyone here know how I can change this setting "open files" to a larger number?? If I do this, will this effect the system at the OS level and if I should also look into other file settings as well?
Please let me know since I'm still a newbie to Linux.
Thank you in advance.
