Re: NIFI doesn't start - shows "Too many open files" in nifi-app.logs

Mentor

@Winnie Philip

Check the current limit

cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max 

Run this command as root set it for example to 1million

# sysctl -w fs.file-max=1000000 

Then to permanently update it edit /etc/sysctl.conf and the below line

fs.file-max = 1000000

Retry and the "Too many open files" shouldn't appear
