Yes, do switch, you'll get higher performance overall.

Alternatively, look up a long related thread a few weeks ago and hack around the limit:

1) Save old epmd.

2) Modify __DARWIN_FD_SETSIZE in /usr/include/sys/_structs.h and make it, say, 16384.

3) Recompile Erlang.

4) Restore old epmd since it can't handle more than 1024 fds.
