Chirpstack-Application-Server stop working


I have one Chirpstack instalattion in use. Sometimes the application-server stop working (API and Web Interface is not accessible). The only solution is kill chirpstack-application-server process and restart service.

On journalctl -u application-server:
Jul 12 06:52:07 chirpstack-application-server[1421880]: 2021/07/12 06:52:07 http: Accept error: accept tcp [::]:8080: accept4: too many open files; retrying in 1s

Any solution fot that?


You might need to increase your max file descriptors, but without information of OS and what is running in your environment, it might push the issue to the back for a while and might come back later to bite you.
