I have a pc which I am going to turn into one of
our siblings proxy servers. The squid book says, the
file descriptor values should not go below 1024.
Qestion1: Do you know how do freebsd 4.10 sets its
default(fresh install) file descriptor value? For
example, here are the components of the workstation I
am installing squid into.
Pentium III 600 MHz
64 MB SD RAM
15 GB hard disk
When I run 'sysctl kern.maxfilesperproc' this value
so, it already violates the squids recommended
settings which should be not less than 1024 file
descriptor(Squid: The Definitive Guide -Duane
On the other hand, another workstation of mine with
the following components...
256 DDR PC333
Athlon XP 2000
80 GB seagate harddisk
...shows its file descriptor as
Qestion2: both of the kern.maxfiles and
kern.maxfilesperproc's values are changeable and so,
how will I know what is the maximum value I can set
them to(with regards to my hardware setup)?
