    I've never seen that warning before.

    Your fs.file-max kernel parameter is not set correctly and I suspect without delving deeper into other related kernel parameter settings and the history of kernel tuning on that particular server, it could prove tricky on this forum to find out why.

    The largest 64 bit signed integer possible is 9223372036854775807 and this is what your fs.file-max set to. The question for your System Administrators is; Why?
    It's a Warning message and I'd be surprised if you hit that number of open GFDs. I think you can sleep easy.

    Someone else in this forum may have may previous experience of this.
