I installed 9.4.3b2. I haven't seen any "too many open file
descriptors" messages so far.
"sockstat | grep named | wc -l" shows me much less listen bind
versions. During the whole night and at this early time in the morning
we just have 40-150 open binds. Maybe all our customers are enjoying
their summer hollydays or 9.4.3b2 handels it much better.
