I'm a new swish-e user, just downloaded 2.2.3, running on a Sparc 10
(ancient hardware!) with OpenBSD 3.1. I'm trying to index a large
email archive where each message is in an individual file - currently
about 15,000 messages.
I try running
swish-e -i . -f ../index.swish -e -v 5
err: Couldn't open temporary file './swtmplocD14751': Too many open files
I have used sysctl to increase kern.maxfiles - twice now, from 1058 to 2048
to 4096 - the swish-e process dies after the same number of files every time.
Help? Is this running into a per-process limit rather than an overall limit,
