inotify Watches Limit
Kite watches directories in
$HOME to be notified when python files change on disk. This allows us to provide the latest information & completions from your coding environment.
However, for larger workspaces, Kite can exceed the default limits on
inotify watches, which can result in a degraded experience.
To fix this, add an entry into
sysctl to increase this limit:
sudo echo “fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 524288" > /etc/sysctl.d/30-kite.conf
sudo sysctl -p --system
- Restart Kite
