Setting these limits in a persistant to recommended values way can be achived by editing
* soft core unlimited * hard core unlimited * soft nofile 131070 * hard nofile 131070 * soft nproc 131070 * hard nproc 131070 * soft memlock 1000 * hard memlock 1000
Opening larger ports range can help RavenDB's machine to recieve more parallel requests. This can be done, in example, using:
sysctl -w net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range="10000 65535"
or by adding the following to
