How to use

Purge limits.d directory

The class limits will purge the limit.d directory as default. You can explicit change this with the parameter purge_limits_d_dir or just do not call the class.

class { 'limits': }

limits::limits { 'username_nofile':
ensure     => present,
user       => 'username',
limit_type => 'nofile',
hard       => 16384,
soft       => 16384,
}

Do NOT purge limits.d directory explicit

class { 'limits':
purge_limits_d_dir => false,
}

limits::limits { 'username_nofile':
ensure     => present,
user       => 'username',
limit_type => 'nofile',
hard       => 16384,
}

Set both limit types in one line

limits::limits { 'username_nofile':
ensure     => present,
user       => 'username',
limit_type => 'nofile',
both       => 16384,
}

One of hard, soft or both must be set!
