1827960 - Adjusting operating system limits for SAP instances

Symptom

You are confused about operating system limits of <sid>adm user and known for SAP.
When you run 'csh -c limit' on operating system level with <sid>adm user, the result is similar to:

> csh -c limit
cputime      unlimited
filesize     unlimited
datasize     unlimited
stacksize    8192 kbytes
coredumpsize 0 kbytes
memoryuse    unlimited
vmemoryuse   unlimited
descriptors  100000
memorylocked 64 kbytes
maxproc      31841
maxlocks     unlimited
maxsignal    31841
maxmessage   819200
maxnice      0
maxrtprio    0
maxrttime    unlimited

However, if you run the same command on SAP level, i.e. RSBDCOS0 report, the result is different:

[1]csh -c limit
cputime      unlimited
filesize     unlimited
datasize     unlimited
stacksize    unlimited
coredumpsize 0 kbytes
memoryuse    unlimited
vmemoryuse   unlimited
descriptors  65536
memorylocked 64 kbytes
maxproc      31841
maxlocks     unlimited
maxsignal    31841
maxmessage   819200
maxnice      0
maxrtprio    0
maxrttime    unlimited

You want to know the reason of difference.
