Can anyone shed any light?
It really hurts at peak time :)

Thanks for the reply.

The only references to worker in my config are:

worker_processes  4;
    worker_connections  4096;

I read in nginx wiki if worker_rlimit_nofile is not defined, the value from ulimit -n is used?

Check "worker_rlimit_nofile" directive.
