I have an app which forks 4500 times or so (don't ask, it's a long story).
The run cycle looks like:
- do some stuff
- kill child
- go back to top
I am finding that about half of the forks return -1, and it looks like
this might mostly be the last half or so. Is there some sort of prcoess
limit I am bumping up against that I might not be aware of (this is on
2.4.18 x86 if that matters)?
Is it safe to assume this is just temporary resource exhaustion, wait a
couple of seconds, and then try again?
