Re: ulimit change still does not persist across system boot



We had a problem with this at one point.  I believe the culprit was pam.
When you log into the box via ssh it calls pam to authenticate.  This
switches your user in the process, reducing your ulimit back to 1024.  By
the time you've gotten a shell your ulimit max is once again 1024.

We found the settings did work if you did one of: A) Logged in directly from
the console, B) did a su - username as root, C) started the command in an
init script with su - username -c <startup command>

I don't remember how we got it to work from a ssh session though.  We may
have given up and just done our start / stops with init scripts.

Take a loot at "/etc/security/limits.conf" ...

Set there something like:

USERNAME     -       nofile          8192

...this should work

PS: the file-mode shall be 644... cross-check that also ;-)
