[LDM #DRV-310603]: -close switch



Erik,

As described in
<http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-current/basics/pqact.conf.html#output-file
 limit>,
pqact(1) will close the least recently-used file descriptor if and when it needs
a new one. Thus, you needn't worry about the number of descriptors in use.

> Would there eventually be an issue where too many file descriptors are left
> open?  Or does the kernel have a way of closing them eventually if there
> are too many open?

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
