You can read about ulimit Settings and the commands to manage them in more detail, here.

For reference, you can use the ulimit command at the system prompt to check system limits, as in the following example:

$ ulimit -a

You can change ulimit settings by issuing a command in the following form:

$ ulimit -n <value>

We hope that helps. Please let us know if that worked for you!
