Question

Concurrent open files limit

Are there any limits on concurrent open files applied to droplets?

Some other VM providers (no names mentioned) don’t publish the fact they apply limits to the amount of concurrent open files, which then breaks things after you’ve bought into a plan with them.

I can’t find anything on the DO website, but thought I’d ask before moving my mailman list over to DO!

Great news, thanks. <br> <br>

We do not apply any limits, it’s set by the kernel (which I believe you can modify).
