Description

the symtoms where that we saw DNS failures with an error like this in journalctl -xe, but the user had plenty of disk space (esp. in the root partition):

dnsmasq: failed to create inotify for /etc/resolv.conf: No space left on device

so it looked like a network error, but it was related to CrashPlan. See this bug.

One suggested work-around is to put it in an init script to execute at each boot:

echo "echo 999999 > /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches" > /etc/init.d/crashplan-watches-limit
chmod 755 /etc/init.d/crashplan-watches-limit
sh /etc/init.d/crashplan-watches-limit
