A couple of days ago Resilio Sync refused to start on my Synology DS918+.  A bit of spelunking indicates an old version installed. Install new version and now I'm getting this banner at the bottom:

"Agent Run Out Of System Notify Watchers"

There is this advisory,, but it might as well be written in Swahili for all the good it's doing me.  I'm fairly computer literate and can find my way around in a Linux Command Window, but I need more than this to sort this out.

I wouldn't care, but the Sync is working very intermittently.

You need some tests. The command seems to be

sudo sysctl fs.inotify.max_user_watches=XXXXX

and xxxxx is variable. You also can execute in PuTTY or similar. If is running you need to check, if also activated after a reboot. If not, you need a task on boot. This you can implement in

DSM > System Control > Taskmanager > Create > User defined script

and as content the above command is used on boot.
