how to maintain /proc filesystem


i am facing a problem in/proc filesystem. Mine /proc filesystem has completely got filled.

Due to this i am getting error task_create() failed for pid 11852: maxuprc (=128) exceeded for uid.that means no new processed can be created.and max processes limit has been reached.

There in no more space left in this filesystem.The file size in this file system has increased tremenously, all files r showing me current date.

Since all files r related to the processed currently running. I cant delete them.

But also dont know hoe to manage it.

Please advice me in this regard

Thanxs

With "kill" you can halt processes dead (man kill). That would free some ressources...

This is strange.
If you type
Code:
 ulimit -a
in a terminal, what does it say??

Groetjes,

This is thread hijacking. You shoul ask in your own thread(s). As to your question
Code:
man ulimit
See section "options".

Dear JZL240I-U

Forgive me for not having been overly clear, but the error message in the orignal post says "maxuprc (=128) has been reached".

To me, this suggests that the user is allowed to start only 128 processes (which would also explain the symptoms the user is reporting).

To verify my assumption, I was asking for the output of "ulimit -a" (whose manpage I know very well, thank you), to check the reported value for "Max user processes"

If this would indeed list "128" I could propose that the original poster increase this limit.

If I promise to be more clear on my intentions in future posts, will you please promise to cool down a bit? IMHO your response is a bit more than I asked for.

Groetjes,

Kees-Jan

Oops, sorry. Its just that some posters don't seem to know that their questions get better answers when they start their own thread with a clear question in the header / topic. I assumed you where in a hurry to get an answer to your (unconnected) post ... my error.
