Dear cpghost,

I appreciate your detailed answer,

Can you help me on setting other limits? I did the following but it did not change.
I would like this like I do in linux:

  ulimit -c unlimited
ulimit -d unlimited
ulimit -f unlimited
ulimit -i unlimited
ulimit -n 999999
ulimit -q unlimited
ulimit -u unlimited
ulimit -v unlimited
ulimit -x unlimited
ulimit -s 244
ulimit -l unlimited

Could you please tell me how I will do it on FreeBSD?

Please don't top-post.

To experiment with sysctl values, try this:

# sysctl kern.threads.max_threads_per_proc
kern.threads.max_threads_per_proc: 1500

# sysctl kern.threads.max_threads_per_proc=2000
kern.threads.max_threads_per_proc: 1500 -> 2000

# sysctl kern.threads.max_threads_per_proc
kern.threads.max_threads_per_proc: 2000

Just experiment until your program behaves as
needed, and once you've found the right value,
add it to /etc/sysctl.conf with a line like this:


This will take effect as soon as you reboot. Of course
you don't need to reboot: sysctl the value manually
as shown above will do just fine. ;)
