Maximum number of processes
Thu Dec 5 21:07:58 CET 2002
Looking at Kenneth Lundin's slides from his presentation on the R9 Release
at the recent EUC I came across the following statement:
"The maximum number of Erlang processes within one Erlang node
is increased to 2^18 -1 = 262143, previously the limit was
32768. To enable the higher limit the +P flag must be used
when Erlang is started."
I can't find any mention of this in the release notes for R9B-0. I do see
that the +P flag is documented though:
Sets the maximum number of concurrent processes for this system.
By default this value is 32768. The Number must be in the range
This is very good news indeed. I do wonder why it wasn't mentioned though.
