ProcedureHow to Use prctl to Lower a Resource Control Value

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Use the prctl command with the -r option to change the lowest value of the process.max-file-descriptor resource control.

    # prctl -n process.max-file-descriptor -r -v 128 $$
