I've been running a webserver (stronghold) off of FreeBSD 3.3. Things
have been great, until today. Now, whenever I try to load a webpage, I
get this error message:
/kernel: file: table is full
repeated dozens of times. In my stronghold errorlog, I get:
"accept: (client socket): Too many open files in system"
And the hard drive is working real hard.
The hard drive is not full (my df stats show 60%, 22%, 17% capacity,
for filesystems "/dev/wd0s1a", "/dev/wd0s1f", and "/dev/wd0s1e", 100%
for filesystem "procfs" but this is normal when I compare with the
other engineers' machines).
The CGI code has not changed at all (and it is not opening many
files). I can run Netscape and nedit several windows at once. And I
have rebooted a couple of times, to no avail.
It looks like some temp/swap space is full, but I don't know where it
is or how to clear it out. (I suspect this because yesterday, I got
swap-space is full messages for the first time, I had been running
without rebooting for days. A simple reboot stopped the complaining,
but maybe some residue is left.) Any ideas? BTW, I am a novice-
intermediate UNIX user, and a beginner to FreeBSD.
