I've been running it on Solaris 7 and 8. This is a new one on me --
I've only seen this on 32-bit Samba.
Do you have max open files set? or is it the default (10000)?
Is this indeed a 64-bit samba? That is, does 'file smbd' show
/usr/local/samba/bin/smbd: ELF 64-bit MSB executable SPARCV9 Version 1, UltraSPARC1 Extensions Required, dynamically linked, not stripped
Just because it calls fopen64 doesn't mean that it is a 64-bit
application. 32-bit applications can call fopen64.
>From the lfcompile64 man page:
The transitional compilation environment exports all the
explicit 64-bit functions (xxx64()) and types in addition to
all the regular functions (xxx()) and types. Both xxx() and
xxx64() functions are available to the program source.
32-bit application must use the xxx64() functions in order
to access large files.
See the lf64(5) manual page for a
complete listing of the 64-bit transitional interfaces.
Also, in the "Solaris 64-bit Developer's Guide", under "Advanced
Topics: What's New For Applications"
Changes to stdio
In the 64-bit environment, the stdio facility has been extended to
allow more than 256 streams to be open simultaneously. The 32-bit
stdio facility continues to have a 256 streams limit.
Some other document tells you that the number of streams is 65536 but
I can't seem to find it right now.
