Follow these steps to determine how many file descriptors (fd) the probe is currently using and compare with the max allowed:
- determine the pid of "processes"
ps -fea | grep processes
- note down the pid for "nimbus(processes)"
- count how many file descriptors are used by the probe "processes" by running this command
ls /proc/<pid>/fd | wc -l ==> note that <pid> is the process id noted in the previous step
- compare the result with the fd limit
cat /proc/<pid>/limits | grep open
These numbers will indicate how many file descriptors are currently in use by the probe processes and which is the max they can reach.
