How to increase file process and user process without recompiling the kernel?
1 Solution
This may be what you are looking for... The reason I originally needed to hunt this down was during bulk mailing the machine would stop responding due to the fact that sendmail was creating and working with so many files in the mqueue directory.

First, `cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max` and bump that up to whatever you see fit, perhaps 16000?  You can accomplish this by typing `echo 16000 > /proc/sys/fs/file-max`
