Goal

Observing the following error in the Control Broker Log:
[strerror(24)=(Too many open files)]

------------

00:50:11.350 MNK E 2 (monklog:391): >>>>MONKEXCEPT:0040: Mo_create_port: error opening "/egate/monitor/COMPONENT_NAME
00:50:11.351 MNK E 2 (monklog:406): OUT" [strerror(24)=(Too many open files)].
00:50:11.351 CB A 2 (processTranslation.cxx:4336): monk translation failed, function name: ABC-Notification

------------

ABC-Notification is the replacement for the Notification.tsc that ships with SRE. The errors above were caused by the script trying to write out to files used by monitoring system. Once the number of open files is reduced ( i.e. by shutting down some eWays and moving them onto another CB)  the errors displayed above are not observed.
