I've just stumbled upon the doc/TUNING guide and really like the wording and advice in there:

  • openfiles-max=13500
  • kern.maxfiles=16000

Updated the GH pull request as well, this is the latest version containing these changes:

got it! nice catch though;
thanks for the heads up on this one here. appreciated!

sorry it took me long to write anything back.

PS: please check if rev10* also works for you, I really would like to roll that one back.

hello there,
sorry for the radio silence.

the /OpenBSD page is locked, so one should create a diff and submit the ticket to the person responsible to that page.

I'll propose a little diff (on the current version, v13) but I do would appreciate to rollback to v10 [with the updated info] as I mentioned before. the changes to the page should not be extensive info on how to tune the OS - afaik, it's not the focus of our pages.

we still miss the requested updates on the guide :"(

should we close the ticket and ignore it (I vote for not doing it),
or should we update the guide (I can not do it, I do not have privileges to do so)?

KR,
