I often set up my limits.conf to a very high nproc level

      xxx           soft    nproc          16384
      xxx           hard    nproc          16384

Open in new window


How can I do this with threads.  What is the default leve3l for threads and how would I extend it.

Thanks

Actually
xxx - nproc 16384

Threads use local stacks and a bit of info in process's own stack
do we talk java here?

No,  there is no java.  Can I assume there is no limit on the number of threads available ?

It just uses some memory from parent thread and some to hold environment and first 3 file handles.
Say 16K for thread should be allowed in parent's stack.

You have to explore event handling in your program. that way you can manage without that many threads.
