I have a Testing Server with only 2gb RAM, running it on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS BIONIC

Sometimes its active after few seconds then it fails


Is there another log file with the name of you node in /var/log/elasticsearch/ directoy maybe there's more information there.

Does your server already boot before or is it the first time you launch it?
Did you install plugins?

PS: can you use the formating button for the logs it's really hard to read.
