Re: Maximum number of allowed open files

Hi Santhosh,

Check this thread related to same issue. It say's ulimit value might have set for the user who starts java application.

>user settings are same as kernel limit.

This may be the nfile limit for total open files?
Not sure why it appears at exactly 1000?

that wasn't the case. I check it by "sar -v 3 3" during the problem

If this is repeatable you may want to use "tusc -fp -o tusc.out" on your application and see where the error is occurring.
