I'm on a VPS which has an open file limit. Odoo is quite havy in his open files... 

BTW, can anyone answer why this is so?


Is there a solution to lower odoos footrint?

I found a command 'lsof' on the web and it shows that postgresql is a heavy 'sinner' - anyone got an idea what to do?

Hi, David,

As lsof; most probably the cause is the postgres ... you can try to fix postgres by setting the max_files_per_process in postgresql.conf the default is 1000 so you can reduce this number ...

Hope this could helps a little bit ...
