Zoomdata Version

Installation Prerequisites

Configuring Max Open Processes and Open Files To Support Zoomdata Runtime

If you are installing Zoomdata in a server running either CentOS v6 or Ubuntu v14, then this configuration step is necessary.

If your server is running either CentOS v7 or Ubuntu v16 or later, then this configuration step is not needed.

To avoid runtime issues with the Zoomdata platform (which include services like the Scheduler), Zoomdata recommends configuring  the maximum number of open processes and open files that can be run in your operating environment. These recommended settings will help avoid having Zoomdata processes hit the resource limits that may be imposed by your operating system.

Perform the following steps:

  1. Use the following command to access and open the limits.conf file:
    vi /etc/security/limits.conf
    If the configuration file does not exist, this command will create it.
  2. Add the following lines to the file:
    zoomdata        soft    nproc           4096
    zoomdata        hard    nproc           4096
    zoomdata        soft    nofile          10000
    zoomdata        hard    nofile          10000
  3. Save and exit the configuration file.
