how to fix this warnig

Chandran Manikandan
Hi Friends,

I have noticed below log in dovecot.log on my machine Centos 6.7 32 bit.

 Warning: Inotify instance limit for user 89 (UID vpopmail) exceeded,
disabling. Increase /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_instances

I have increased manually but after reboot goto the same existing default
value.
How do i fix this issue permanently.

Advance thanks for your help.

Chandran,

How about this

|# echo "fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288" >> /etc/sysctl.conf Eric |

524288 is arbitrary, use whatever works for you.
