Looks like my system is running out of free pty's. There are a bunch of users on the system running screen, so we are using up a ton of the ptys.
How do I find out the limit of ptys on my system? (sysctl doesn't seem to show anything relevant.)
How do I increase that value? The pseudo-pty value in the kernel config has no assigned value (ie. we are using the default).... but what is the default?
Which version of FreeBSD?
I had a similar problem on my 4.9-stable box. What I did was use /dev/MAKEDEV to create some more pty devices.
will show you how many you have, then
/dev/MAKEDEV pty1 (can also use pty2 pty3 pty4 etc)
will create more.
