Re: Getting "java.io.IOException: Too many open files"
Without knowing the intricacies of Kafka, i think the default open file
descriptors is 1024 on unix. This can be changed by setting a higher ulimit
value ( typically 8192 but sometimes even 100000 ).
Before modifying the ulimit I would recommend you check the number of
sockets stuck in TIME_WAIT mode. In this case, it looks like the broker has
too many open sockets. This could be because you have a rogue client
connecting and disconnecting repeatedly.
You might have to reduce the TIME_WAIT state to 30 seconds or lower.
