There a limit in the linux kernel on the total number of thread/processes
allowed to run? I seem to recall that this limit is different for the
various distros, but essentiall, it typically under 1024... It can be
increased in the kernel source, and the kernel can be re-built to get around
this. But if the system needs that many, than linux probably isn't the best
platform, at least, not until 2.4 kernel is released. Cause seriously, if
you need that many processes, then you should also be using an SMP
multi-processor system, and linux doesn't do smp well. not yet...
just my $0.02 worth...
