Hello,

Is there a limit in the number of inodes that imon can monitor?
I guess it depends on system resources, is there a way to calculate on it?

The reason i wonder is that i'm having trouble when i try to monitor a
directory that's using 42776 inodes.
What happens is this (after a while, i'm having a perl script adding
directories to FAM):
My perl script stops
In the console i get many of theese:
Kmalloc: Size (196608) Too large!
(I have lots of free memory)
And when i ctrl-c out of the script i get lots of lines looking like theese:
fam[28346]: fd 6 write error: Broken pipe
fam[28346]: fd 6 write error: Broken pipe
fam[28346]: IMONIOC_EXPRESS on
"/web/622/cgi-data/trade/auction/greatlakes/rare" failed (euid: 0): Cannot
allocate memory
fam[28346]: fd 6 write error: Broken pipe
fam[28346]: IMONIOC_EXPRESS on "961461914.dat" with cwd
"/web/622/cgi-data/trade/auction/greatlakes/rare" failed (euid: 0): Cannot
allocate memory
fam[28346]: fd 6 write error: Broken pipe
fam[28346]: IMONIOC_EXPRESS on "961461991.dat" with cwd

allocate memory
fam[28346]: fd 6 write error: Broken pipe
fam[28346]: fd 6 write error: Broken pipe

"/web/622/cgi-data/trade/auction/greatlakes/misc" failed (euid: 0): Cannot
allocate memory
fam[28346]: fd 6 write error: Broken pipe
....

i run fam like this:
fam -v &

I'm using imon 0.0.2 on Linux kernel 2.2.17, latest version of fam.

Plese respond to johan@xxxxxxxx, i'm not (yet) on the mailinglist.
I'd appretiate all help i can get to get this working, i think this is
excellent software! :)

Thanks,
Johan Isacsson
