I've created a simple go script: https://gist.github.com/kbl/86ed3b2112eb80522949f0ce574a04e3
It's fetching some xml from the internet and then starts X goroutines. The X depends on file content. In my case it was 1700 goroutines.
My first execution finished with:
$ go run mathandel1.go 2018/01/27 14:19:37 Get https://www.boardgamegeek.com/xmlapi/boardgame/162152?pricehistory=1&stats=1: dial tcp 184.108.40.206:443: socket: too many open files 2018/01/27 14:19:37 Get https://www.boardgamegeek.com/xmlapi/boardgame/148517?pricehistory=1&stats=1: dial tcp 220.127.116.11:443: socket: too many open files exit status 1
I've tried to increase
ulimit to 2048.
Now I'm getting different error, script is the same thou:
$ go build mathandel1.go # command-line-arguments /usr/local/go/pkg/tool/linux_amd64/link: flushing $WORK/command-line-arguments/_obj/exe/a.out: write $WORK/command-line-arguments/_obj/exe/a.out: file too large
What is causing that error? How can I fix that?
