Known Issue V19+: macOS 'Too many open files'
Issue: The following error can be seen when attempting to run a full node on macOS using the built-in Qt wallet or other GUI-based wallets: "Exception while running wallet: open: Too many open files". This is due to macOS having a very low default file descriptor limit and V19.0 uses more of them after the move to TCP.
Solution: For now a workaround is needed to increase the limit. The method depends on the specific macOS version, but some people had success with the recipe in https://superuser.com/a/1171028.
