Ideal Value for ulimit

Hi Folks,

There are a few questions about “Too many open files and increasing the filedescriptor by using the umlimit command on Unix the solution for it”
My Question is “Is there a ideal value to which the filedescriptor can be set using ulimit”

Looking forward for your responses,

Thanks in advance,


I have worked at places where ulimit is set between 256 - 1024. You can set it to unlimited.

But from my experience, it is the TN queries which are filling the wmRepository (in IS4.6) which cause the “Too many open files” problem. Scheduling the service (with confirm set to “yes”) has solved my problems with “Too many open files”.
