Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Re: ulimit

maybe time to use the "search" function within this forum. Use the keyword "ulimit" as a starter ;-)

Re: ulimit


you find it in man ulimit and it's done by
ulimit -c unlimited
Otherwise Ralf is right. The search engine is a good place to start.

Re: ulimit

ulimit -c is used to limit core dumps.

But when you are going for ulimit, we have to care on hard limit and soft limit.

ulimit -Hc
--> it sets hard limit

ulimit -Sc

--> it sets soft limit

Execute with out value to know it's value there. As normal, to give unlimited access then use unlimited key word there.

We can control it with ulimit(2) system call too.
Easy to suggest when don't know about the problem!
