Stein Series Release Notes¶
A configurable limit on the number of file descriptors that can be opened by a rootwrap-started process has been added. It defaults to 1024, but can be adjusted by setting the
rlimit_nofileoption in rootwrap.conf to a larger or smaller value.
Because a file descriptor limit was added in this release (see the features section for details), rootwrap processes that were previously relying on inheriting their parent process’s descriptor limits may exhaust their available file descriptors. Use the
rlimit_nofileoption to restore the previous limits if this is the case.
