Setting max limits in /etc/security/limits.conf
on 7-18-2008 4:24 AM Dr R L Oswald spake the following:
What we would like to do on a server running CENTOS 4.6 is to restrict
max cpu time for most interactive users but ensure that processes for
system users such as root & special userids that provide services are
kept as unlimited.
The documentation for limits.conf is not very extensive but I think I am
correct in assuming that resource limits specified in limits.conf only
apply to processes that *login* to a system, rather than those kicked
off at boot time as daemons?
There does not seem to be any obvious way of specifying an unlimited
value for a resource unlike the ulimit command ? Does anyone know a way
of specifying unlimited in limits.conf ?

read HTML postings on lists. Just a suggestion.
