Should we be using the database for session management? Our ulimit is set fairly high as far as I can tell with the following command on RHEL 6
[xxxxxx@rhodecode etc]$ cat /proc/sys/fs/file-max

    what does

    ulimit -a
    show you ?

    If you're sure that the limits are set to high you could switch to database based sessions.

    ## db session ##
    #beaker.session.type = ext:database
    #beaker.session.sa.url = postgresql://postgres:qwe@localhost/rhodecode
    #beaker.session.table_name = db_session

    This is the section in your ini files to do that
