    increasing the number of file descriptors on RHEL8


    Does anyone know if there is a way of increasing the number of file descriptors that a unix socket can use. It looks like it's set at 1000ish on RHEL. I have an application that creates unix sockets and 1000 may not be enough. The sockets seem to TIME_WAIT for a few minutes before closing.

    What are the drawbacks of increasing the file descriptors?
