Yep, in FreeBSD it's just "limits" which gives:
Resource limits (current):
cputime infinity secs
filesize infinity kb
datasize 524288 kb
stacksize 65536 kb
coredumpsize infinity kb
memoryuse infinity kb
memorylocked infinity kb
sbsize infinity bytes
vmemoryuse infinity kb
22190 is double the default.
When I'm running without the issue (quota = dirsize) the # of open
files is generally around 5k:
# sysctl kern.openfiles
When I change it, I can get it to go as high as I want (I then change
dovecot back to dirsize for quota)

I just tried, but being a busy time right now, doing "lsof -p [PID] >
lsof.txt" never returns before the # of open files gets maxed and the
server goes to hell. I'll have to try again at a slower time to see if
it will return- right now's about the busiest time of day on this box.
Is there anything in particular you're looking for in there? Most of
the lines are similar to the ones in the attached (small!) text file.
