-pam_limits — PAM module to limit resources
-The pam_limits PAM module sets limits on the system resources that can be
-obtained in a user-session. Users of uid=0 are affected by this limits, too.
-By default limits are taken from the /etc/security/limits.conf config file.
-Then individual files from the /etc/security/limits.d/ directory are read. The
-files are parsed one after another in the order of "C" locale. The effect of
-the individual files is the same as if all the files were concatenated together
-in the order of parsing. If a config file is explicitely specified with a
-module option then the files in the above directory are not parsed.
-The module must not be called by a multithreaded application.
-If Linux PAM is compiled with audit support the module will report when it
-denies access based on limit of maximum number of concurrent login sessions.
- Change real uid to the user for who the limits are set up. Use this option
- if you have problems like login not forking a shell for user who has no
- processes. Be warned that something else may break when you do this.
- Indicate an alternative limits.conf style configuration file to override
- the default.
- Print debug information.
- Some broken applications actually allocate a utmp entry for the user before
- the user is admitted to the system. If some of the services you are
- configuring PAM for do this, you can selectively use this module argument
- to compensate for this behavior and at the same time maintain system-wide
- consistency with a single limits.conf file.
- Do not report exceeded maximum logins count to the audit subsystem.
-These are some example lines which might be specified in /etc/security/
-* soft core 0
-* hard rss 10000

-@faculty soft nproc 20
