Kite Exceeds the 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 and 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
