I'm in search of a new VPS provider after finding out how feeble my current environment is. Due to a large influx of bounced emails being generated as a result of spammers using bogus email addresses from one of my domains, my server has been having performance problems due to errors as a result of to many files open at a time. When I check my environment the setting for numfiles is 1280, which my ISP claims they can't adjust. I'm assuming this is low and was wondering what the setting would be on VPS server here and if the limit could be raised. I've checked to make sure my server isn't listed on the spam blacklists. Since support from my current provider appears to be non-existent, I ended up making changes to the Sendmail setting to reduce it's memory requirements. Should I continue to encounter problems would support here be able to suggest Sendmail tuning settings?
