Please help : "too many files are open" error in Q


Please anybody help for the following problem:

In my QNX server machine is showing error message as “too many files are open” afterwards I am not able to login into my server.

If anybody knows the solution for the above problem in QNX. Please reply back asap.


What version of QNX ? Run “uname -a” on your server and post the result here.

QNX 1 0 425 PCI 32

If the HD is rather big you may need to specify -H to Fsys. That means rebuilding the image file. Otherwise this may be a problem with an application goin nuts and opening files like crazy. As the system run you can do “sin fd” to get a list of all file descriptor.
