FlexNet Code Insight Too Many Open Files Error
SummaryThis article discusses how to resolve the error: Too Many Open Files Error.
SymptomsFlexNet Code Insight Error: com.palamida.workspace.WorkspaceException: (Too many open files)
CauseThe maximum number of open files that users can have open in a single session is set to too low of a number.
ulimit and sysctl programs allow to limit system-wide resource use.
To resolve the issue, you need to first check the ulimit settings. Performing the command below will give you the current value of your open files:
$ ulimit -a
Typically, we suggest this value to be set to 65536. To change the open files settings, do the following:
1) Open $/etc/sysctl.conf or $/etc/security/limits.conf
2) Add the following entries:
soft nofile 65536 hard nofile 65536
3) Log off, and then re-login.
4) Check to make sure the new value is reflected with the ulimit -n command.
