I need to understand the functioning of the kernel parameter "fs.file-max. "
If I add in the file "/ etc / sysctl.conf" parameter:
fs.file-max = 8000
May mean that you can have no more than 8000 open files?
The fact is that if I make a:
lsof | wc-l
I sometimes see that the number exceeds 8000.
I do not understand.
