Stein Series Release Notes


New Features

  • 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_nofile option in rootwrap.conf to a larger or smaller value.

Upgrade Notes

  • 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_nofile option to restore the previous limits if this is the case.
