Description Masahiro Ito 2010-07-28 03:10:04 EDT
Description of problem:

Can you add descriptions of how to set up /etc/security/limits.conf file? If your system permits for users to log-in, you usually want to limit users' resources.

Keeping in mind that a lot of users use limits.conf, it's worth adding the description to RHEL documents, even though there is a man page of limits.conf.

Comment 2 Scott Radvan 2010-07-28 17:15:50 EDT
I need specific details to document this, I don't have this information. Marking NEEDINFO.
Comment 3 Paul Kennedy 2010-11-19 11:55:36 EST
Setting NEEDINFO again per Comment 2.
Comment 4 Paul Kennedy 2010-11-19 16:29:57 EST
Redarding NEEDINFO, is the intent to provide a more in-depth description than the man page. Or, is there a need to provide more in-depth examples? Other information?
Comment 5 Paul Kennedy 2010-11-30 16:09:27 EST
The NEEDINFO flag has been set since 2010-07-28. More clarification is needed to proceed. Please refer to Comment 4. Thank you.
Comment 7 Paul Kennedy 2011-06-03 16:09:45 EDT
Not enough information has been provided to address this bug, despite setting NEEDINFO flag. Closing as CANTFIX.
