cannot fork too many processes

Hi all,

I am getting cannot fork too many processes,
I hope this is because of maxuprc. how to increase this, what are the effects if we increase this parameter.

OS version:11.11

Re: cannot fork too many processes

It's either that or nproc. Increasing either parameter means only that your kernel will get a bit larger in order to store the extra table entries for the additional processes - normally not a bad thing unless you are severely memory constrained.

Use SAM > Kernel Configuration > Configurable Parameters, change the parameters as desired, then Actions > Process New Kernel. Obviously, you will have to reboot in order to put the new kernel into effect.
