I am currently receiving this warning when nginx is started:
[warn] 902#0: 4096 worker_connections are more than open file
resource limit: 1024
Here is some quick background:
I am running on Fedora 8 core 2.6.x. Originally if I opened a shell and
typed “ulimit -n” it would come back with 1024. If I manually entered
“ulimit -n 65536” and then launched, nginx, the warning would go away.
So I figured I just needed to find a way to set the ulimit system wide
at boot time. After some Google searches I added this to my
- soft nofile 65536
- hard nofile 65536
Now when I reboot and launch a shell, when I type “ulimit -n” it comes
back properly and shows 65536.
However, when my custom-made init.d script runs from a fresh boot, I
still get a warning from nginx saying the limit is 1024.
So then I added “ulimit -n 65536” to my init.d script just prior to
launching nginx, but this did not make a difference as I still get the
warning. I am launching nginx from the init.d script with a plain old
/path/nginx -c configpath command. I also tried adding “daemon” in front
of it but that didn’t make any difference.
Can someone please let me know what I need to do to the
config/environment so that nginx sees the 65536 available file
descriptors instead of just 1024? Thanks!
