Subject [users@httpd] Too many open files (24) - ulimit not obeyed?
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 21:55:38 GMT
Hi, my apache 2.0.52 is logging 
Too many open files (24) and throwing HTTP error code 500

the apachectl script sets the max FD to 65536, 
and lsof shows ~20,000 entries for httpd 
(about 6000 txt - others are pipes to cronolog)

It seems like the ulimit is not obeyed, but I echoed the settings after the 
apachectl runs at its at the hard limit.

god@web-04:~ 1:53pm 51 # lsof | wc -l
   20558
god@web-04:~ 1:53pm 52 # lsof | egrep httpd | wc -l
   15978

Does anyone have a hint how to make apache happy and use the 64k limit?

many thanks
