    SubjectRE: Poll Error
    Date

    There is no such limit in the poll function. You won't run into problems
    with it until you hit about 16,000 fds. You will not, of course, be able to
    _open_ more than 256 files unless you adjust your per-process resource
    limits. And you may not be able to create more than about 10,000 unless you
    adjust your system-wide inode and file limits.
