    Command:

    prlimit

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           prlimit [options] [--{resource_name}[=limits] [--pid PID]
    
           prlimit [options] [--{resource_name}[=limits]] command [argument...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Given a process id and one or more resources, prlimit tries to retrieve
           and/or modify the limits.
    
           When command is given, prlimit will run this  command  with  the  given
           arguments.
    
           The  limits  format  is  composed by a soft and a hard (ceiling) value,
           separated by a semicolon (:), in order to modify the existing value(s).
           If no limits are used, prlimit will only display the current values. If
           one of the values is not used, then the existing one will be  used.  To
           specify  the  unlimited  or  infinity  limit (RLIM_INFINITY), the -1 or
           'unlimited' string can be passed.
    
           Because of the nature of limits, the soft value must be lower or  equal
           to  the  high limit. To see all the available resource limits, refer to
           the RESOURCE OPTIONS section.
    
           <soft>:<hard>  Specify both limits
    
           <soft>:        Specify only the soft limit
    
           :<hard>        Specify only the hard limit
    
           <value>        Specify both soft and hard limits to the same value
    
    
    

    GENERAL OPTIONS

           -p, --pid

    EXAMPLES

           prlimit --pid 13134
                  Display limit values for all current resources.
    
           prlimit --pid 13134 --rss --nofile=1024:4095
                  Display  the  limits of the RSS and set the soft and hard limits
                  for the number of open files to 1024 and 4095, respectively.
    
    
    
    

    NOTES
