So I set up this small encoding farm with eight computers, all macOS, some with Big Sur, some with Monterey. 96 threads total. DOM 2.15.186.
But I get this error that points to the master computer:
Could not open file /Users/daniel/Desktop/Fellini Premières Fois/info/185_2K_dc44c9da55df01170d55afe11b29b539_24_150000000_P_S_0_180132000 for read/write (24) with /Users/daniel/Desktop/Fellini Premières Fois/info/185_2K_dc44c9da55df01170d55afe11b29b539_24_150000000_P_S_0_180132000
Could it be because of the name of the project "Fellini Premières Fois"?
It looks like error 24 is basically "too many open files". I think on the master with 96 threads there might indeed be a lot of open files. It looks like there's some suggestions here about how to raise the limit. I'd be interested to know how you get on if you tried any of those...
I remember that I tried insanely high thread numbers occasionally. Up to 96 according to my logs, and never had problems. However, that was clearly all with 2.14.x So it's definitely not just the thread number setting.
AND - that was only with low numbers of remote machines. And all in WIN7-64Pro. May be different with a high number of clients.
