Elastic Search-Java.lang.OutOfMemoryError


(Sahadevan) #1

We are getting "Out of Memory Exception" frequently on elastic search instances. 3 machines are in Elastic search cluster with Similar configuration.

Environment: Windows Server 2012 R2 64 bit OS. Ram : 24gb Elastic search : 6.3.2 JVM Heap Size (jvm.options in elastic search): -Xms16g -Xmx16g

We have tried with 2g (Xms2g & Xmx2g) and 8g (Xms8g & Xmx8g) for min and max heap size but ended up with same error.

And as per the following link https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/guide/current/heap-sizing.html

we have tried with (Xms12g & Xmx12g) for heap size i.e., 50% of 24gb RAM, but still fails.

Solved. After updating the jvm.options file with heap sizes (Xms12g & Xmx12g), for windows machine we need to re-install the elastic search service instance to reflect the changes for heap size.
