applications. then when I look at the yum log the DV provisioned by my host
I see those same libraries as default installs. To me there seem to be two
possible explanations -- one, there are unnecessary libraries installed on
the system that are racking up my open files needlessly; two, my app is
using these libraries for things I an unaware of. can you think of another
