GCS process ID keeps changing

  • High: It blocks me to complete my task.

I am trying to manually set the ulimit on the GCS process to avoid the too many open files error. However when I do ps ax | grep gcs-serve, the process ID changes constantly.

Is this expected? And if it is, is there a way to launch the GCS while specifying ulimit?

Yes, it is expected it will change - so we couldn’t really control it.

But as I mentioned in the another post - the ulimit should be applicable to all processes on the single host. So the changing gcs PID should not be a problem here.
