I'm using samba4 (4.0.5 version) in Debian Wheezy. When I run the "smbstatus" command, I have a curious message. Here is an example:

root at samba-1:~# smbstatus -b
rlimit_max: increasing rlimit_max (1024) to minimum Windows limit (16384)

Samba version 4.0.5
PID     Username      Group         Machine                        
10833     jcoudour      domain users (ipv4:
10989     mcoullet      domain users (ipv4:
20178     jury1         domain users (ipv4:
10779     hcoubard      domain users (ipv4:
11852     administrator  domain users (ipv4:
# etc.
# etc.

1) What is the meaning of the message below?

2) Is it a serious problem?

Thanks in advance for your help.
