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?
