I need to increase the files limit on my system (for running on large files in Spark).

The release of linux on my server is:

Redhat Release: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.6 (Maipo)

I added the following lines to /etc/security/limits.conf (the second and the third lines are my addition):

#@student        -       maxlogins       4
*        soft    nproc           64000
*        hard    nproc           64000
# End of file

I added the following line to /etc/pam.d/login file (second line is my addition):

session    required     pam_namespace.so
session    required     pam_limits.so
session    optional     pam_keyinit.so force revoke 

I closed the session and logged in again. I typed:

ulimit -n But got the same old result: 1024.

How can I solve it?
