Which limit?


    How many cache slots to reserve for open overview files.  The default value is 15
    (which is probably way too low if you have a large number of file descriptors available).


    The maximum number of file descriptors that innd(8) or innfeed(8) can have open at once.
    If this parameter is set to a negative value, the default limit of the operating system
    will be used; this will normally be adequate on systems other than Solaris.
    The default value of this parameter is -1.
    Setting it to 256 on Solaris systems is highly recommended.

Which problem?
