Ulimit - Amazon Elastic Container Service

Ulimit

The ulimit settings to pass to the container.

Amazon ECS tasks hosted on AWS Fargate use the default resource limit values set by the operating system with the exception of the nofile resource limit parameter which AWS Fargate overrides. The nofile resource limit sets a restriction on the number of open files that a container can use. The default nofile soft limit is 1024 and hard limit is 4096.
