Kern.maxfiles limit exceeded by uid 62

  • Hi

    pfsense has started sending the message "kern.maxfiles limit exceeded by ui62, please see tuning (7)"

    I increased the kern.maxfiles using sysctl but after a few hours the message began again

    Although this does not seem to have affected the throughput of pfsense, I would rather not have this error message bugging me.

    So …. what is causing this message to appear and how do I repair this?

    What is uid62

    And what is tuning (7)

    Thanks for any help provided
