    Default increase file descriptor limit

    How does one increase the max file descriptor limit for a given process? Right now it is unlimitTed but I can only open 1024 file from any of my programs. My programs are segmenting after 1024! I am using 11.86-64. It worked using 11.1 32 bits.

    THKS,

    View your current soft and hard limits with

    Code:
    ulimit -aS
    ulimit -aH
    and check

    Code:
    man limits.conf
    to see how to change it. Some more info can be found here: Performance tuning.
