How can we decide what value to give to max user processes in Linux.
For example , in our Linux server we have currently 5000 max user processes defined.
And we faced problem because the value was not sufficient. I dont know on what
Basis we should arrive at any particular figure, is it based on the number of
Users in the company ? or any other criteria.
(Our Linux version is Red hat Linux 4 update 5 and kernel version is 2.6.9-78.0.13.ELsmp)
We use Oracle E-Business Suite R12 and we have 200 users working on it everyday.
