Hi All,

I have started using the API calls to librrd in my program (Thanks for
helping out :-) ) - but have started getting the "too many open files"
error message from rrd_get_error()  after around 1200 rrd files have
been created/updated. I am not opening any files or sockets in my
program, so the rrd functions should be the only ones using the file
descriptors. Also, the application is not multi-threaded , so there is
only one call to rrd_xxx functions at any point - I expect that after
each return from the rrd_update() or rrd_create() calls the file
descriptor count would have been unchanged if the files had been
properly closed. Then, why is this error occuring ? Has anyone
encountered the same problem before ?
