I want to increase file descriptor limit (ulimit -n) on my running
I know I can do it by setting up limits.conf and restarting RabbitMQ
nodes but I would prefer to do it without node downtime if possible.
What I tried was:
# echo -n "Max open files=4096:4096" > /proc/$(cat
but rabbitmqctl still shows lower value:
# rabbitmqctl status | grep -A 2 file_descriptors
Where is this total limit of 924 coming from at first place?!
Process itself seems to accepted the increase :
# grep -i open /proc/$(cat /var/run/rabbitmq/pid)/limits
Max open files 4096 4096 files
