Error: Socket failed: Too many open files

Sun Oct 12, 2008 4:08 pm

Has anyone seen this error before?

Running TheDude 3.0rc3 on ROS 3.13. After about 24 hours, TheDude alerts for every one of my monitored devices, with a status of "Socket failed: Too many open files". A reboot fixes the problem, but it inevitably appears again in about 24 hours. This makes The Dude practically worthless.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them.

Please, upgrade your RouterOS version to 3.14.
Generate support output file, if the same problem will be present and send it to support (support@mikrotik.com).

I did that, still same issue. The issue does not seem to affect ICMP and DNS test - all other tests report SOCKET FAILED.

I just upgrade to 3.15 today. If the issue crops up again, I'll generate the supout. and e-mail.
