What are the implications and reasons for increasing the max open files limit?

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/dotnet/core/macos-prerequisites?tabs=netcore2x

I was looking at getting .NET Core installed, checking out what I need to set it up and noticed it’s at least 8x more than the current default value.

$ launchctl limit maxfiles maxfiles 256 unlimited 

So, why is this needed and what could happen if I do?
