setting ulimit (-c) on HP-UX 11i v1 v2 v3

I was told that ulimit (-c) can be set for all in the /etc/profile. Is this true? Is it the "best" approach? Will setting it from the command line ONLY be req'd every time a reboot occurs?

Hi John,

I was told that ulimit (-c) can be set for all in the /etc/profile. Is this true?
Yes

Is it the "best" approach?
The /etc/profile is used globally on the server, all users will have the same ulimit settings.

Will setting it from the command line ONLY be req'd every time a reboot occurs?
No, every time you exit the shell(logout). If you would login again you will need to set the ulimit again. You could also change the ulimit vallue in the $HOME/.profile of the user.

Have a look at this thread for more info.
