NetIQ AppManager for UNIX Agent version 7.0.1
The 7.0.1 NetIQ AppManager for UNIX Agent (Linux) for will begin to eat file handles opening /proc/net/bonding when a bonded network interface is present on the system. Eventually the open file handle limit defined by ulimit will be hit and the agent will need to be restarted.
The code causing the bug was rewritten shortly after the 7.0.1 release in 2007 so future code audits did not turn this bug up.
This bug was (unknowingly) fixed in Hotfix 71018
You can also install the 7.1 UNIX Agent which does not contain this bug.
The Linux performance counter code opens /proc/net/bonding when bonded interfaces are present but never closes the directory.
