Enclave now enforces a (generous) limit on process counts in containers

Thomas Orozco on May 23, 2018

Enclave now limits the number of processes running on your containers to 16384. For comparison, a full Linux host limits the process count to 32768 by default (although we do use higher limits on Enclave hosts).

As such, this limit is extremely unlikely to affect you as a customer, but will provide meaningful stability improvements to the platform.

That said, if you’d like to monitor your process counts across containers, and compare them to the limit, we’ve exposed process counts and limits in Metric Drains.
