What's the recommended max # of open files in my situation?
Posted on 2004-04-20
I run a very busy web server with 4000+ domains of which about 10% of them are very active. The tech specs:
1. RH 7.1 + Apache 1.3
2. Dual 1 GHz PIII
3. 4 GB ECC RAM
4. Dual 74 GB SCSI
May I know what's the recommended max # of open files (file-max) in MY SITUATION? In addition, should I increase the max # of open inodes (inode-max)? Please point me to the reference you used to formulate your conclusion. Please don't preach about Apache tuning or anything off topic. Thank you.
