Comment 2 moylo 2006-12-05 07:14:43 EST
It seems that this was fixed in 3.8. but not in 4.4. Centos have an RPM with the
forward patch available in their centosplus repository. Can't this be fixed in
RHEL too?
Comment 4 ratness 2007-01-04 17:19:57 EST
So this was fixed in RHEL3 (RHBA-2006-0322), and not in 4?  What's the holdup?
Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2007-02-09 10:32:36 EST

If you'd like to use this feature, you have to edit /etc/squid/squid.conf (a
max_filedesc directive, it's at end of the file) and set the same value via.
ulimit (#ulimit -n max_filedesc_number). You can check it by "#ulimit -n".
