Can't start elasticsearch service: "Could not reserve enough space for the object heap"


(Lorenzo Dieryckx) #1

Hi,

I'm having trouble starting elastic on CentOS via the elasticsearch-service.
I get the error "Could not reserve enough space for the object heap"

I must say that I'm using a pretty low memory VPS, but I think that I
should be able to run elastic anyway.

for reference: the contents of my elasticsearch.conf:

set.default.ES_HOME=/opt/elasticsearch/elasticsearch-0.19.3
set.default.ES_HEAP_SIZE=256
set.default.ES_MIN_MEM=%ES_HEAP_SIZE%
set.default.ES_MAX_MEM=%ES_HEAP_SIZE%

Did you try to modify elasticsearch.yml file?

ElasticSearch performs poorly when JVM starts swapping: you should ensure

that

it never swaps.

Set this property to true to lock the memory:

bootstrap.mlockall: true

Make sure that the ES_MIN_MEM and ES_MAX_MEM environment variables are set

to the same value, and that the machine has enough memory to allocate

for ElasticSearch, leaving enough memory for the operating system itself.

You should also make sure that the ElasticSearch process is allowed to

lock

the memory, eg. by using ulimit -l unlimited.
