Best value for max_user_watches

Postby fred44nl » 2018-08-13 08:30

by default the Inotify value for max_user_watches seems to be 8192
but that gives complaints, e.g. from Minidlna
so, I doubled it and again and again, which gives 65536
now there are no more complaints.
is this value extremely high ??
or can I increase it even more, in case this would be required ??

thanks, I have seen similar things, but nobody says how far one should go :)
