Subject ThreadStackSize quirk on Linux
Date Tue, 31 Mar 2009 14:52:54 GMT
I'm finding that when I try to reduce the stack size with
ThreadStackSize on recent linux systems, where ulimit -s is NOT
unlimited (but very large, 10240K) , ThreadStackSize fails to have any
effect (via pmap / ps -eFw).

When ulimit -s is unlimited, and the default is very large,
ThreadStackSize works. Has this always been the case? If so, I'd like
to document for Linux that you're best off heading straight to ulimit
/ limits.conf.

(I looked at RHEL4 and RHEL5 with recent maintenance)
