Cause

The WA Agent may be started as root.  The agent then runs the jobs as user from the job.  The spawned process will inherit the limits of the root or user that started the agent.

Resolution

Set the ulimit of root or user that starts the agent to a higher limit.

Alternatively, set the ulimit in scripts that are being executed by the agent.
