Too many open files?

Hi all,

My latest test system includes a Kerberos server that uses OpenLDAP via IPC as its back-end database. It usually works, but not always. For example, recently, after failing to get kadmin to add a new principal to the Kerberos database, I found this error in the provider's syslog:

Feb 10 22:37:29 kls1 slapd[1722]: bdb_db_cache: db_open(entryUUID) failed: Too many open files (24)
Feb 10 22:37:29 kls1 slapd[1722]: bdb_index_read: Could not open DB entryUUID
Feb 10 22:37:29 kls1 slapd[1722]: conn=4 op=13 RESULT tag=105 err=80 text=index generation failed

A restart of the Kerberos KDC and admin servers seemed to solve the problem, but obviously that's not ideal. Later on, I had a look at the numbers of open files on the system:

~# lsof -i |grep slapd
slapd    1722  openldap    8u  IPv6   4603    TCP *:ldap (LISTEN)
slapd    1722  openldap    9u  IPv4   4604    TCP *:ldap (LISTEN)
slapd 1722 openldap 545u IPv4 12823 TCP kls1.example.com:ldap->kls2.example.com:51555 (ESTABLISHED) slapd 1722 openldap 744u IPv4 8899 TCP kls1.example.com:ldap->kls2.example.com:49100 (ESTABLISHED)

545 and 745u!? A restart of the Kerberos servers didn't make a difference, although restarting slapd brought these values down to 8 and 9u respectively. However, I have no idea what caused these numbers to rise. See my provider/master server's config files below.

Does anyone have an idea what might be going on and how I might prevent this situation from occurring again?
