We're preparing for a Spectrum platform 2023.1 installation. The installation guide says this:
For Linux systems, a minimum value for file descriptors is required. Review the current Installation Guide for recommended settings. This can be set by running the ulimit command: ulimit –n limitsetting
I'm confused because I thought I was reviewing the current Installation Guide.This raises two questions:
1) Where is the current Installation Guide, if not the location linked above?
2) If that is the current Installation Guide and this is a typo, what is the appropriate limitsetting?
Specify these settings in /etc/security/limits.conf:
Here's the link
For example, let's say we're installing on RHEL 7. The soft nofile setting suggested for limits.conf is 65536. Are you saying we should run the command ulimit –n 65536 ?
After configuring limits.conf file, run this command ulimit -n this should return 65536 or more if you have set that higher.
