Oracle Linux: How to Set Resource Limits for a Process with System V init Services in OL7+ (Doc ID 2888307.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 11, 2022

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.0 and later
Linux x86-64
Linux ARM 64-bit


Oracle Linux 7 (onward) utilises systemd, a system and service manager, to start system services, however, System V (SysV) init-based services remain supported for backwards compatibility purposes.
The setting of resource limits for systemd-based processes is discussed in Doc ID 2643455.1.
This method, however, is inapplicable for legacy SysV init-based services ( /etc/init.d/*).
This document describes how to modify resource limits for processes started via legacy init-based services.
