For testing purposes i even raised root's limit.
# /etc/security/limits.conf * soft nofile 65535 * hard nofile 65535 root soft nofile 65535 root hard nofile 65535
rtorrent process is run by user "user".
user@localhost:~$ ulimit -n 65535
But when i look up rtorrent's maximum number of open files:
user@localhost:~$ cat /proc/1141/limits Limit Soft Limit Hard Limit Units Max cpu time unlimited unlimited seconds Max file size unlimited unlimited bytes Max data size unlimited unlimited bytes Max stack size 8388608 unlimited bytes Max core file size 0 unlimited bytes Max resident set unlimited unlimited bytes Max processes 15700 15700 processes Max open files 1024 4096 files Max locked memory 65536 65536 bytes Max address space unlimited unlimited bytes Max file locks unlimited unlimited locks Max pending signals 15700 15700 signals Max msgqueue size 819200 819200 bytes Max nice priority 0 0 Max realtime priority 0 0 Max realtime timeout unlimited unlimited us
I'm running Debian 9.1 Stretch.
The max_open_files limit in .rtorrent.rc config is also set.
I rebooted after the changes. Any idea why ?
Thanks for your answers!
EDIT: Looks like screen is the reason. If i start rtorrent without screen, everthing is fine. Any idea why ?
