   Thanks. Which one is for ulimit stack? I do not want to touch others. Is anything to be done in  /etc/default/login or is that alternative way to do it. Thanks

You can set in /etc/system with your own parameters…most of the times it is the file descriptors and user processes - as shown below


set rlim_fd_max=16384

set rlim_fd_cur=8192

set maxuprc=150

  First figure out which ulimit you are seeing. Often there is   confusion between the getrlimit call and the builtin ulimit from bash

       What is a good way to set ulimit stack value at OS/UNIX level     permanently. Right now I can set it for a session but I want it set     permanently. Thanks for help. When I say ulimit it says unlimited but when     I do ulimit -a I see some values that are not unlimited. I think unlimited     is also limited by the settings on the server and is not really unlimited.     Thanks
