Fyi: Too Many Shared Folders Causes File Open Errors


Recommended Posts

Just FYI incase it happens to you. On my linux box, btsync got stuck at startup because while running it opens a sqlite db for every shared folder and sqlite maintains two extra lock files per db file while open. With the default nofile limit (max number of open files) at 1024 this means as you run out of file handles at about 340 shares because of sqlite database files.  On linux you can boost this limit by editing /etc/security/limits.conf .
