Re: Partitioned table causes open_files errror

Looks like this may be by design:

"...With MyISAM tables, one extra file descriptor is required for the data file for each client that has the table open. (By contrast, the index file descriptor is shared between all threads.) ..."

So, then the answer would be to increase the linux level max open files (nofiles) for mysql, as well as the mysql open_files_limit if necessary. Limiting connections have a similar effect, but increasing the limits is probably the better option (overhead for open files should not be that much of an issue).

So, (tables + total partitions) * (max concurrent connections expected)...?
