What is the difference between:
a) using the
ulimit command to set a limit on a resource?
b) editing the
/etc/security/limits.conf file for the same purpose?
e.g. what is the entry that should be placed in
/etc/security/limits.conf to account for
ulimit -n 8192 ?
Is the limit set by
ulimit -n 8192 soft or hard?
For whom is it being set?
For the user running the command?
Or it becomes the default entry as if we were using
