Subject: ulimit behaviour ...
Date: Fri, 25 Jul 2003 16:11:12 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20030725141112.GA2713@www.13thfloor.at> (raw)


Hi All!

Just stumbled over it ...

ulimit -H -u <#procs>

refuses to go below the current 'soft' limit,
this was not the case in 2.4.21, but I do not
know when, how and why this changed ...

I do not have a problem with that, but it will
give some troubles on certain configurations,
which simply reduce the hard limit to something
reasonable and expect the soft limit to follow

best,
Herbert
