Your answer is quite abstract.
Somewhat in detail?
Our Apache-Http-WebServer is installed on LINUX. It receive everyday hundred-thaudsends of requests. Sometimes I see in the log files there are error messages such like "Cannot open TEMP file '/tmp/_wl_proxy". I think this problem maybe have to do with the number of 'open files'. But I don't know what a number should I take.
