ERR_MISC_EOPENF: Too many open files

DSS and its subprocesses hold more open file descriptors than the limit configured for this system/process/user.


This issue can only be fixed by a DSS administrator.

To fix this issue:

  • Stop DSS, and make sure no processes are still running

  • Check the allowed number of open files with ulimit -n (as the unix user that runs dss)

  • Increase that limit, ideally to 64,000

  • Restart DSS

If this does not solve your issue, please report the issue to Dataiku support.
