I am needing to increase the soft limit for "file descriptors", and make it effective for a non-root user (lets say user1).
Ran these commands, while logged in as user1:
>ulimit -a core file size (blocks, -c) 0 data seg size (kbytes, -d) unlimited scheduling priority (-e) 0 file size (blocks, -f) unlimited pending signals (-i) 61440 max locked memory (kbytes, -l) 32 max memory size (kbytes, -m) unlimited open files (-n) 1024 pipe size (512 bytes, -p) 8 POSIX message queues (bytes, -q) 819200 real-time priority (-r) 0 stack size (kbytes, -s) 10240 cpu time (seconds, -t) unlimited max user processes (-u) 61440 virtual memory (kbytes, -v) unlimited file locks (-x) unlimited > ulimit -Hc unlimited > ulimit -n unlimited -bash: ulimit: open files: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted
user1 is not on the sudoers list. is this command effective, only when run as a root user?
Also, does this change require a server reboot, to become effective?
