The file descriptor limit is 8192 for the userid slapd runs as and
OpenLDAP was built with that FD_SETSIZE (env
CPPFLAGS="-DFD_SETSIZE=8192").  I have verified that other
applications running as the slapd userid can grab up to 8192 file
descriptors.  However, slapd maxes out at 1024 file descriptors every

Aug 17 16:35:46 sparky slapd[8406]: daemon: 1024 beyond descriptor
table size 1024

This is on Red Hat ES 3.0.

Is there some other build option that should be included in order
enable a larger file descriptor limit?

Thank you very much for your response and time.
