[Icecast] Maximum Listeners.

Hello there,

I’ve configured my server for maximum 50000 open files.

[root at scast1 ~]# ulimit -a
open files                      (-n) 50000
max user processes              (-u) 65535

While im doing the Load Test 1, my server only reaches ~1015 listeners. 

I’ve set this on etc/security/limits.conf :

icecast hard nofile 50000
icecast soft nofile 60000
icecast soft nproc 65535
icecast hard nproc 65535
* hard nofile 50000
* soft nofile 60000
* soft nproc 65535
* hard nproc 65535

If I set this: 
[root at scast1 ~]# prlimit -n5000 -p <pid>

Everything works perfectly. But if I stop or reboot my ice cast server, 1024 backs again.

What can I do to save that open file setting?
