OID Stops Responding with the Log Showing Error "Socket fd=xxxxx greater than system max=xxxxx ........ Closing the connection" (Doc ID 2248779.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1.9.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

OID 11.1.1.9.0


OID becomes unresponsive due to oidldapd process not closing the sockets opened for writing the OID alert logs and OS level open files limit will be reached.
Need to restart OID periodically to resolve the issue

OID Server (oidldapd) logs show the following error when the limit is reached

[OID] [ERROR:8] [23145] [OIDLDAPD] [host: xxxxxxx] [pid: 4308] [tid: 2] ServerListener : Socket fd=65634 greater than system max=65535 numconns=36.
Closing the connection.

[OID] [ERROR:8] [23145] [OIDLDAPD] [host: xxxxxxx] [pid: 4308] [tid: 2] ServerListener : Socket fd=65634 greater than system max=65535 numconns=36.
Closing the connection.

 

 

An "lsof" output on oidldapd process id shows many entries related to OID alert log

example:
/usr/sbin/lsof -p 1822 |grep oidldapd
