Troubleshooting Debian

Test cx_Oracle in Python

Use the following instructions to test the installaion of cx_Oracle

Login as peek and run:


Run the following commands in Python:

import cx_Oracle
con = cx_Oracle.connect('username/password@hostname/instance')
print con.version
# Expcect to see ""

OSError: inotify instance limit reached

This is caused when developing peek. The Peek Platform watches the files in each plugin and then copies them the the UI build directories as they change, EG build-web.

There are quite a few files to monitor and the limits are nice and conservative on Linux by default

To solve this problem, run the following command as root

echo "fs.inotify.max_user_instances=2048" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
echo "fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
sysctl -p
