tail: inotify cannot be used

Written by config on . Posted in CentOS, Linux, Ubuntu


If you get the following error:

tail: inotify cannot be used, reverting to polling: Too many open files

you can adjust these values in your sysctl.conf:

fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 1280000
fs.inotify.max_user_instances = 512

If you do not have those, just add it and run /sbin/sysctl -p
