I believe modern Linux systems have much higher than 1024 file
descriptor per process limits. E.g. on my system
$ uname -srv
Linux 4.4.0-64-generic #85-Ubuntu SMP Mon Feb 20 11:50:30 UTC 2017
$ cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max
And you can adjust this limit to your requirements.
Sorry to jump in here out of my closet, but i think this fact needs
some clarification. My research came up with the following:
/proc/sys/fs/file-max is not the "per" process limit , rather then the
overall limit of the system
This can also be controlled by writing into /proc/sys/fs/file-max.
to get to know the hardlimit per process you use
soft limit is showed via
as the ulimit manpage states, the hard limit acts as a ceiling for the
softlimit , which can be controlled.
So we have the per-proccess limitations, but as soon as we fork() and
recieve a new pid, we can have yet another set of fds , right ?
