SSH Constraint May Cause WLS Reporting "too many open files" (Doc ID 1360043.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Weblogic Server - Version: 10.3 and later   [Release: and later ]
Generic Linux

Symptoms

Commonly, when we see "too many open files", we simply increase the parameter of "ulimit -n" or change it to "unlimited". This doesn't always work.

After checking it, "ulimit -n 8192" nor "ulimit -n unlimited" do take effects, running "ulimit -n" still report 1024? Why?
