Get Maximum Stack Size on Linux

In the Linux operating system, managing resource limits is crucial for optimizing system performance and ensuring the stability of applications. One such resource is the stack size, which determines the amount of memory allocated to each process for its stack. This tutorial explains how to get maximum stack size on Linux.

One way to obtain the maximum stack size limit is by using the ulimit -s command. It returns a value in kilobytes, which represents the maximum amount of memory allocated for the stack segment of a process.

ulimit -s

For example, if you run the command, and it returns 8192, it means the stack size limit is 8192 KB (or 8 MB).
