[DOC] Add systemd limits instructions in "high-performance-netdata" page #655
I suggest add to Limits section of high-performance-netdata, instructions to raise limits using systemd units. I based my config in https://ma.ttias.be/increase-open-files-limit-in-mariadb-on-centos-7-with-systemd/ and here worked as following:

I just followed the Wiki https://github.com/firehol/netdata/wiki/high-performance-netdata and noticed there is no instructions to do this configuration within systemd, so I did it and im adding it here as a proposion to insert in documentation.
I don't know if it still applicable but I did it since is in the documentation.
Thanks! I also was wondering where to add them.
