MAXFILES_LIMIT upper limit

According to SAM help, the upper limit of MAXFILE_LIMIT is 60000, but SAM cannot allow values over 2048.

why ?

which does SAM config file content these upper limits ?

Thanx a lot

Re: MAXFILES_LIMIT upper limit

Hi Damian,

You're right, as the maximum value is 60000 but, to be useful, the value assigned to maxfiles must be less than the value of maxfiles_lim.
maxfiles_lim is useful only if it does not exceed the limits imposed by nfile and ninode

Here is a link to a document explaining all kernel configurable parameters:

Best regards,

Dan

Re: MAXFILES_LIMIT upper limit

Hi Dan.

My nfile value is greater than 14000 and I want to change the maxfiles_lim value to 4096 but SAM doesn't allow me.

why ?

I remeber there is a file from where SAM gets the limits of the kernel parameter, but I forgot its name.

Re: MAXFILES_LIMIT upper limit

Hi Damian,

The file where the limits are defined is:
/usr/conf/master.d/core-hpux

The entries for maxfiles_lim reads:
*range maxfiles_lim<=2048
*range maxfiles_lim>=30

It this what you're looking for ?

Regards,

Dan
