HI expert,

Do you know if there is any way we can find out what is the maximum file handlers is allowed to be use per process by default on HP?  We are seeing some file handler issue on HP even if we set the ulimit to a very large number, (More than 8000).  Or maybe a restriction of the user permission to allow the ulimit number to get set correctly?

run unlimit and it is setting to a value more than 8000.    Would that be a default value is set to certain number and the user define ulimit number has no effect on the system?
