Hello everyone,

One of my nodes is going down regularly because it is running out of file
descriptors oever a period of time (about 20 hours). I've had the same node
running for the past six months with no outage at all using R7B but now I've
added orber and upgraded to R8B.

The client is a WebLogic app server which creates CORBA objects in my node.
Each object seems to result in the opening of 2 TCP connections. What is
happening here? MY file descriptor limit is set to 512 and I have about 50
mnesia tables in total. Has anyone else seen this kind of behaviour.

One thing I do is try limit the number of objects created. I do this by
killing old objects (erlang gen_servers) when a new create request is
created which exceed the max number of allowed objects. Is this what might
be causing the problem - is there a more graceful way of deleting an object?
