I encounted "fd=1024 is larger than the largest allowed fd=1023", then I set the ERL_MAX_PORTS variable when start the erlang vm. But it takes no effect.

$ erl -env ERL_MAX_PORTS 4096

Erlang R15B01 (erts-5.9.1) [source] [64-bit] [smp:4:4] [async-threads:0] [kernel-poll:false]

Eshell V5.9.1  (abort with ^G)
1> erlang:system_info(check_io).

The max_fds is always 1024. 

Kind Regards
