Description Janne Pikkarainen 2003-01-29 11:11:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218

Description of problem:
Squid bundled with Red Hat seems to have only 1024 file descriptors available
per default. This limit can be easily raised by adjusting DEFAULT_FD_SETSIZE
parameter from the Squid's configure script & OPEN_MAX value from
/usr/include/linux/limits.h and after that recompiling Squid. 

Is there a reason why the default maximum value is so low? If there isn't, could
it be pumped up in the forthcoming releases of Red Hat?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Linux 8.0 (or whatever version, I think)
2. Start Squid.
3. See how your highly loaded proxy server starts to run out of file
descriptors, thus slowing down the server.

Actual Results:  After running Squid for couple of minutes it ran out of file

Expected Results:  Squid shouldn't run out of file descriptors. Recompiling
Squid with higher maximum values fixed the problem.
