I have a problem with CentOS 4.4 and Communigate Pro 5.0.9. As our
user number grows, we are seeing "too many files open" error messages in
I spoke with Communigate tech support and they asked me to increase the
number of file descriptors which i did. I put 128000 as a script i made
to check Communigate open files reported as high as 99000. As i
checked the Communigate log file, it reported that it "sees" 1024
"available" file descriptors.
Reporting that to Communigate tech support, the guy answered:
"CommuniGate gets this number via getdtablesize() system call. Probably
in CentOS the table has a fixed size so you need to recompile the kernel
to expand it. Try upgrading CentOS to 4.5 (or whatever later version is
I'm a little afraid of upgrading the server right away, i don't want to
worsen the problem. Or maybe it's safe to do it. I dunno.
Is there anybody on the list that can comment on what the Communigate
tech support guy said about the "getdtablesize" thing ?
Thanks in advance!
