Pods fail with "too many open files" error

Pods fail with "too many open files" error:

This error has been discussed in the upstream Kubeflow repo (kubeflow/manifests#2087), to resolve it, you will need to increase your system's open/watched file limits.

On linux, you may need to increase the fs.inotify.max_user_* sysctl values:

  1. Modify /etc/sysctl.conf to include the following lines:
    • fs.inotify.max_user_instances = 1280
    • fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 655360
  2. Reload sysctl configs by running sudo sysctl -p
