amavis process limit for Ubuntu 13.04

It appears on Debian there is a /etc/amavisd.conf file that has a $max_servers variable that can be set to control the number of amavis processes that run on a server.

However, the file does not exist in Ubuntu and I believe the /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user is the comparable file from Googling.

However, adding a "$max_servers = XXX;" to that file does not seem to have an impact on the number of amavis processes running. I am doing a "sudo /etc/init.d/amavis restart" after making any changes to the configs...

How do I change the amavis process limit in Ubuntu 13.04?

have you looked at ulimit settings?  the application is one thing; the operating system could be taking precedence here for that setting

Sorry for the long delay, but I was monitoring the server to see if this resolved the issue. I couldn't find anything regarding the ulimit setting affecting amavisd. I ended up migrating back to Ubuntu 12.04LTS (for numerous other issues in addition to this) and the process limit worked on the 50-user file.
