#1131 closed defect

fedora rpm doesn't set ulimit -n, so you can't run a fast relay — at Version 3

Description (last modified by arma)

If you run a fast relay, you will end up using more than the default
1024 file descriptors. Currently we point people who run relays to
https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-relay.html.en and hope they
read through to item #14.

Debian, on the other hand, has a clause in the init script:
https://git.torproject.org/checkout/tor/master/debian/tor.init
that sets MAX_FILEDESCRIPTORS based on how many file descriptors are
available on the machine, before it launches the Tor process.
