I have an application which keeps giving me the following error.
tail: inotify cannot be used, reverting to polling: Too many open files
I have already followed all the advice I've been able to find on web searches, and have changed the number of open file descriptors in all ways I know how. I've also rebooted the server. What might still be blocking my process from opening more files?
Some useful data:
# lsof | wc -l 8347 $ lsof -u <username> | wc -l 7533 $ cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max 98349 $ cat /etc/security/limits.conf ... <username> soft nofile 32768 <username> hard nofile 65536 ... $ ulimit -Hn 65536 $ ulimit -Sn 32768
