Hi All!

As the subject states: Can't locate ulimit binary to Increase Max Open Files on Asuswrt-Merlin 384.19 for a running process. I can't find it as an Entware package, either.

I'm running out of connections with my Asuswrt-Merlin Tor Guard/Relay daemon and the tuning document recommends increasing the max open files with ulimit.

Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Respectfully,


Gary

On my router, ulimit is available.
Code:
# type ulimit
ulimit is a shell builtin
# ulimit -a
-f: file size (blocks)             unlimited
-t: cpu time (seconds)             unlimited
-d: data seg size (kb)             unlimited
-s: stack size (kb)                2048
-c: core file size (blocks)        0
-m: resident set size (kb)         unlimited
-l: locked memory (kb)             64
-p: processes                      1719
-n: file descriptors               1024
-v: address space (kb)             unlimited
-w: locks                          unlimited
-e: scheduling priority            0
-r: real-time priority             0

ulimit is a shell built-in function so it doesn't have its own binary.

Ah... That explains why I couldn't auto-complete or which it at the command-line.

Thank you for your assistance!
