I tried increasing kern.maxfiles:
# sysctl -w kern.maxfiles=1048576
kern.maxfiles: 1772 -> 1048576
Which does not help. The system does not have very much going on, certainly
nothing that would keep a large amount of files open at once. Has anyone
else seen this problem?
Once you've increased kern.maxfiles you then need to increase
your ulimit for descriptors.
