Last modified: 2016-11-03 17:16:48 EDT
Description of problem:
The number of file descriptiors used by squid is hardcoded to 16384 via a compile option in the spec file.
182: --with-filedescriptors=16384 \
This prevents raising the FD limit with e.g. LimitNOFILE in systemd's squid.service file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add LimitNOFILE=32768 to [Service] section in squid.service
2. restart squid
3. check "open files" in /proc/<pid>/limits or squid's cache.log:
Max. number of open file descriptors still 16384.
LimitNOFILE directive honored
