|Subject: ||Re: What is the maximum number of processes?|
You can find out the maximum number of processes on your machine by
using the command sysdef. This is a tunable parameter which can be
configured by root: v.v_proc.
If the maximum number of processes is reached, attempts to create new
processes will generate errno 11 (EAGAIN). This scenario can be
detected in a program by checking the return code and errno returned by
a call to launch a new thread or LWP. Type man intro.2 to see more
information on system calls and errors.
