Raise open file limit in cron jobs in Solaris

0 votes

For a backup job on Solaris 10 x86, I need to raise the process.max-file-descriptors. For an interactive
session I could do "ulimit -S -n 512" or equivalent "prctl" command. Or it could be put into .profile.

Where would you recommend the command be run for cron jobs that do not source .profile

Id go for a simple wrapping script in the crontab, raising the limit
then running the command. I think its easier to keep thing obvious.
