Is there anything I can do short of an automatic restart to prevent
from cropping up again? I have an MMR via Syncrepl setup with nothing
too complicated; can?t think of any reason offhand that slapd would need
to have more than 1024 files open.
If you're not expecting this load, perhaps you should verify it with
lsof(8) / pfiles(1) / similar tools ... then you can modify the limit
and/or rectify the behavior as appropriate. If the behavior involves
"unnecessary" long-lived connections, please read slapd.conf(5) paying
particular attention to the idletimeout and writetimeout directives. I
don't see any reason why restarts should be necessary.
