Alfresco open files

Question asked by marco.altieri on May 6, 2011
In a production server with an alfresco enterprise 3.4.0 the following command:

lsof | grep "/opt/alfresco/alf_data/contentstore"

returns more than 1000 rows.

The server doesn't seem working heavy… I should say, it doesn't seem to be doing anything at all.

Why are there so many open files inside the content store?

I know that Alfresco needs to open a lot of files and I have already configured the linux server to let Alfresco open 4096 files, but I would like to understand how it works and what could happen if the number of users and the numbers of documents increase.
