It's also possible to increase kern.mbuf.nmbclusters, if I recall
correctly, but you should normally be getting ``mclpool limit reached''
messages in dmesg if that is needed.

See also the RLIMIT_NOFILE for that process (or alternatively the
process-specific sysctl nodes for it, proc.<pid>.rlimit.descriptors.*).
