maximum number of ip aliases
I am trying to setup a machine with a large number of
IP aliases bound to a single interface. When I do this,
things seems to be happy to some extent, but sometimes
I get the message "socket: too many open file descriptors"
followed by a program quitting. BIND in particular seems
to have this problem.
Is there a maximum number of aliases that one can define
to a single IP interface? Are there kernel configuration
options that might be able to boost this? Is there a BIND
configuration option that can "fix" this?
Thanks in advance.
