maximum number of processes on kernel 2.4.x
Does anybody know how to change the maximum number of tasks/processes
available under the 2.4.x kernels, similar to tuning NR_TASKS and
MAX_TASKS_PER_USER in 2.2.x and 2.3.x? Our mail software sometimes
requires a large number of processes, and we cannot ssh into the server
once the number of processes belonging to root reaches 256.
Thanks for any help that you can provide,
