[Gluster-users] glusterfs and samba (file-max limit reached)

Recently a gluster I setup got mounted on a server that exports it 
through samba. It appears to work till a point. Unexpectedly on heavy 
usage the nodes happen to reach the max file descriptors opened limit 
really easily.

Anybody else has experience on it? Is that kind of usage supported.

currently one node seems to have surpassed about 3M open files even if 
the samba server claims to have about 75k files currently opened.

I'm using a recent gluster snapshot from git.
