Hello,

 

All services in my poller show (execute command failed)In the logs this is what I get: Service check command execution failed: pipe creation failed: Too many open filesWhen I look at the number of open files everything is ok, I only have 10% of open files on my whole system. I don't understand where it comes from. The only solution for now is to reboot.Can anyone tell me where this is coming from?

 

Cordialy,

Francis

Hi, 


There is a per process limitation. Probably that you hit the centengine open files limitation and not the system one. 

 

You can get interesting information here and there

Hello?

Why centengine hit limitation open files? I have 40 poller juste 1 poller which has a problem.

I have increase the limitation open files but I hava always the problem.

 

Another idea?

Probably that this poller has something different (OS fine tuning, specific checks, centengine/broker output, network instability) that could explain that. 


Make sure to also change the limit at the process level (centengine.service file). More information here​​​​​​
