    Socketpair failed 24 error filling up log
    Hey all,

    I was perusing my logs and I noticed this message is filling my system log up:

    Sep 2 06:54:17 Enterprise /Library/Printers/Brother/Utilities/Server/[212]: dnssd_clientstub deliver_request: socketpair failed 24 (Too many open files)
    Sep 2 06:54:17: --- last message repeated 499 times ---
    Sep 2 06:54:17 Enterprise /Library/Printers/Brother/Utilities/Server/[212]: *** process 212 exceeded 500 log message per second limit - remaining messages this second discarded ***

    These appear to have started about the same time I installed SL - so I'm sure it's either an incompatibility issue or something went wrong on my SL install - I was just wondering if anyone had seen this error before on SL or previous versions of OSX (offending program is irrelevant, I'm more curious about the error and what could cause too many files to be marked open)

    The only other possibility I could imagine is that I'm in the midst of a major file shift (I had shifted about 1.5 TB of data off my drobo to reformat it as HFS+ (it was NTFS) and now I'm copying it back - which I also started around just after I upgrade to SL)
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)

    I see the same thing. I've simply quit the process from Activity Monitor, and will see if it comes back...
