limits.conf setting and IOException Too many open files

We are getting some errors in our production environment : IOException: Too many open files

We plan to increase ulimit from 1024 to 4096, as described here : https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Loss+of+Functionality+due+to+Too+Many+Open+Files+Error

By the way, can you provide some feedback ?
