The DevTest v10.1 configuration was re-implemented with MySQL 5.7 in AWS (previously was using Aurora DB, a MySQL compatible Cloud-native DB) as a CA supported configuration. Requesting root cause analysis and resolution of the issue.

1. After running a few days Portal just crashes. 
2. Portal log showing these error messages over: 
2018-05-11 08:37:55,595Z (08:37) [qtp1057941451-22-acceptor-0@25bc3831-ServerConnector@6c9de47a{HTTP/1.1,[http/1.1]}{}] WARN org.eclipse.jetty.server.AbstractConnector - Too many open files

Soft and Hard limits for open files is set to 10240. Not an option to set this higher. 

If you refresh the login page in the browser and they saw additional file handles added for the login page over and over. 
The problem is a defect in the asset-pipeline library - specifically if you look at the release notes for version 3.1.2 and 2.7.2 - More aggressive closing of open file handles in Servlet filter for more efficient use of resources. 
Please open a new case and refer to Defect DE363628.

We have a fix for this issue.
Additional Information:
This same fix will work for DevTest 10.2.4 and 10.3.0
