      Quite a few customers run into the problem in Loss of Functionality due to Too Many Open Files Error, where their instance stops working because the max file limit has been reached. We could workaround this by adding a ulimit set to $JIRA_INSTALL/bin/setenv.sh, for example:

      ulimit -n 4096

      This would serve to prevent customers from running into this problem without requiring larger non-trivial coding changes as in JRA-33887. Can you please add changes to setenv.sh to set this argument? Thanks
