Error: too many open files


(Nallwhy) #1

I got that error message when creating container.

Error response from daemon: too many open files

But I couldn’t find any information about that error.
(I saw https://github.com/docker/libcontainer/issues/211, but that was not the same problem of it.)
Is there anyone who knows about it?

Thanks.

Could you show the output of docker version; docker info; uname -a to tell us about your environment?
