I am getting an error (IOMSG from open) that there are too many open files. The logical unit I am using is 93.
acsyscommand: open error = too many open files
So, what is the limit? Is there a way to change it? Any options to diagnose the problem? I am not sure how many files the application has open (600K lines of code).

I don't think the unit number is the problem. Googling on too many open files suggests that there are specific Linux OS issues regarding numbers of open files, and you can find suggestions about how to change this in the OS.
You can change the limit by supplying a new limit value, e.g. ulimit -n 1024
Based on the error shown it seems like the condition was detected and trapped by the app. When exceeding the shell imposed limit, our Fortran RTL produces an error like this:
forrtl: Too many open files
forrtl: severe (603): too many open files
