User Address Space Limits
This topic details how to modify the Linux address space limit for the dbadmin user so that it meets Vertica requirements. The address space setting controls the maximum number of threads and processes for each user. If this setting does not meet the requirements then the installer reports this issue with the identifier: S0090.
The installer automatically configures the correct setting if the default value does not meet system requirements. If there is an issue setting this value, or you have used the
--no-system-configuration argument to the installer and the current setting is incorrect, then the installer reports this as an issue.
The address space available to the dbadmin user must not be reduced via user limits and must be set to unlimited.
To manually set the address space limit:
ulimit -vas the dbadmin user to determine the current limit.
- If the limit is not unlimited, then add the following line to
/etc/security/limits.conf. Replace dbadmin with your database admin user
dbadmin - as unlimited
