I have my client system running FreeBSD 6.3-RELEASE-p1 with 4 GB of RAM. This morning i have the following errors popping up on the console log -
postfix/qmgr: fatal: socket: Too many open files
Googling for this error, I found this is someway related to the kernel parameter kern.maxflies and increasing this value can have errors go away. The present value of this parameter is 24000. I also found this also depends of the RAM we have on the system.
what would the appropriate value for kern.maxfiles for a system having 2GB RAM, a system having 4 GB and a system having 16GB of RAM. Please help
