Thanks a lot for the good advice. We changed in June '95 from Linux to
FreeBSD (it is a relieve) and use bash instead of csh...
I read somewhere that one can limit the open files per process in the
INN-FAQ using csh.
Of course the solution you propose is a lot more intelligent.
The scripts accompagnying the INN 1.4 binaries (ported to FreeBSD), were
written for bash, it took us some time to master the problem. Does
someone have these scripts for csh?
We are still running FreeBSD 2.0.5, and I didn't find sysparams.h, but I
will go througt the compilation-docs again and I'm sure we will be able to
fix the problem the way you propose.
Thanks a lot for your good advice, and keep the good things going.

You have to recompile freebsd's kernal with larger limits.
I set 64 or 128 max users so the over all number of files is large.
The in /usr/src/sys/include - in the sysparams.h I set maxprocs to 128
and max open files to 256
I also change this in the copy of sysparames.h in /usr/include
Then recompile the kernal. You can see what your current settings are
before you do this by logging into the news server and type:

We use INN as our news-program. It works verry fine. We feed a lot of
UUCP-nodes, therefore the system has to opmen many files.
I feel unsecure when the systemload is high, I'm afraid that the files in
/var/news/out.going aren't updated. Can someone give advice to make sure
all news is feeded well?
