When working with Sauce Connect Proxy, you may get a warning message at start up to increase the file limit size to at least 8000.
*** WARNING: open file limit 1024 is too low!
Sauce Labs recommends setting it to at least 8000.
For Linux systems, the way to do this is:
- Gain Sudo rights.
- Run the command:
ulimit -n 8000.You should enter at least 8000 here, as that's our minimum recommendation, but feel free to increase past this number if your system can handle it.
- Restart Sauce Connect Proxy.
