Description Aleksey Nogin 1998-11-10 17:35:49 EST
We are using AMD with 3 NIS maps and one "usual" map and
after several days it runs out of file descriptors. We run
AMD on two computers and the problem occurs on both.

Computer 1 has:
am-utils-6.0a16-2
glibc-2.0.7-19
ypbind-3.3-7
kernel 2.0.35

Computer 2 has:
am-utils-6.0a16-3 (recompiled from RawHide SRPM under kernel
2.1.121)
glibc-2.0.7-19
ypbind-3.3-7
kernel 2.1.123

On computer 2:
# ls -l /proc/<AMD pid>/fd

This is fixed by the upgrading glibc to a more recent version.
Previous releases had a file descriptor leak in the NIS code.
