What are the differences of this? I am so confused.
kernel.pid_max is the maximum number of PID that kernel can assign, then why is there a
kernel.threads-max if there is already a
kernel.pid_max in place? (considering threads-max is higher than pid_max)
2) Same thing with
ulimit -u, i think it usually has a higher value set than
kernel.pid_max. Why is it still needed?
3) Is is true that output of
ps -eLf | wc -l should not be higher than the value of
kernel.pid_max? What do specifically
Sorry if i got too many questions. I would just like to understand it..
