I suppose you could always use ulimit to limit the number of open files for
the process.

Will slapd handle the resource shortage gracefully? I had bad experience with too low file descriptor ulimit in the past.

I guess Philip's reply answered that. The slapd connection manager will do fine, but other subsystems that open and close files probably won't, so this isn't really a practical approach.
