I have tomcat app-server running (on Linux) from past 3+ months handling moderate load. I recently an seeing HTTP 500/503 errors. The catalina.out has log entry for "java.net.SocketException: Too many open files". The last change I made was increase the number of threads Tomcat could use and increased the JVM memory.

I checked the number of file descriptors open and they seem to have not exceeded the max limit.

$cat /proc/sys/fs/file-nr
1446 38 524288

Any ideas, what could be wrong or how to debug further will be greatly appreciated.
Here is the excerpt from catalina.out:
