Description Kevin 1999-05-28 08:11:25 EDT
I was recently looking at my samba logs and it was trying to
request 10,000 open files, and only 1014 are available. It
is just an information status message, not an error
message.... is this a bug or is it a limitation of the
current linux kernel?
exact message: [1999/05/11 13:34:06, 1]
  smbd version 2.0.3 started.

This is a limitation of the kernel (and possibly glibc) rather
than a bug.

BTW, it appears that you can use the "max open files" tuning
parameter to configure a more realistic 1000 open files if
you want to get rid of the message
