Number of Open Files

I am running Linux Red Hat Version 7.

I have had some problems when the system has too many open files. I have increased the number of open files at start up (changed /proc/sys/fs/file-max) which has caused the problem to go away (for now).

Is there a way to find out the number of open files at any given time?
BTW - my system administrator is out sick - so forgive me if this is obvious.
