A commercial software vendor (ansys) has recommended the following values
for the kernel semaphore settings for their application:
· SEMMSL (maximum number of semaphores per semaphore set) = 256
· SEMMNS (system-wide limit on the number of semaphores in all semaphore
sets) = 40000
· SEMOPM (maximum number of operations that may be specified in a semop()
call) = 32
· SEMMNI (system-wide limit on the number of semaphore identifiers) = 32000
Does this make sense? Specifically the SEMMNI value is MUCH larger than
SEMMNS/SEMMSL. Is there any use to that?
