Hi


Too many open files error message in my indexer.


so, ulimit(file opens) values change to 4,096(soft and hard).


However, the error message still occurs.


How are you?


Thank you.

Hello,

Chances are high that you need to increase this number again. With 4.3 and the introduction of bloom filters, it's important to understand that the number of open files used could be increased significantly. I would suggest starting with 8192.
