I can increase the file-max in the kernel but it looks reasonably sized already . Or decrease the max_file_per_process. Has anyone on the list encountered this issue. I am running Postgres 7.4.7.
PostgreSQL could be using somewhere around as much as
max_files_per_process * ( max_connections + 5 ), so make sure that
matches file-max (the + 5 is because there are non-connection processes
such as the bgwriter).
If that looks OK, some file descriptors might have been left around from
the crash... I know this can happen with shared memory segments. It
normally won't happen with file descriptors, but perhaps it is possible.
If that's the case, a reboot would certainly fix it.
BTW, you should upgrade to the latest 7.4 release.
