Solution

Modify the number of files opened by the operating system; log in to the Controller node and execute:

[root@controller ~]# ulimit -a
core file size          (blocks, -c) 0
data seg size           (kbytes, -d) unlimited
scheduling priority             (-e) 0
file size               (blocks, -f) unlimited
pending signals                 (-i) 60587
max locked memory       (kbytes, -l) 64
max memory size         (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files                      (-n) 1024
pipe size            (512 bytes, -p) 8
POSIX message queues     (bytes, -q) 819200
real-time priority              (-r) 0
stack size              (kbytes, -s) 8192
cpu time               (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes              (-u) 60587
virtual memory          (kbytes, -v) unlimited
file locks                      (-x) unlimited

The system default setting is 1024.

Use the command to view the number of currently open files:

[root@controller ~]# lsof | wc -l
174911

Modify vim /etc/security/limits.conf and add the following information at the end of the file:

*               soft    nofile            1024000
*               hard    nofile            1024000

* Means all users,
Restart the server after modification and the configuration will take effect.
