Okay, I just checked out Solaris 8/x86, and it confirms what HP/ux thinks:
_SC_OPEN_MAX OPEN_MAX Max open files per
I'm curious as to whether FreeBSD is the only one that doesn't follow this
"convention"? I'm CCng in the FreeBSD Hackers mailing list to see if
someone there might be able to shed some light on this ... my first
thought, personally, would be to throw in some sort of:
max_files_per_backend = sysconf(_SC_OPEN_MAX) / num_of_backends;
max_files_per_backend = sysconf(_SC_OPEN_MAX);
