elsearch is a ordinary user not root !
The OS is centos 6.5.
ES version is 5.0.0
Rally version is 0.4.6

What can i do for resolve the error!

Hi @Walter,

really weird. Can you please also check the logs in /home/elsearch/.rally/bench marks/races/2016-12-16-09-13-51/local/logs/geonames/append-no-conflicts/server?

How much memory does the machine have? Did you really just run esrally or rather esrally --distribution-version=5.0.0?


i find some warnning in /home/elsearch/.rally/benchmarks/races/2016-12-16-09-13-51/local/logs/geonames/append-no-conflicts/server/benchmark.local.log ,

But the ES and head is normal。
The picture of ES is:

The machine have 1877M memory。
I just run esrally , not esrally --distribution-version=5.0.0 .
The command is
[elsearch@elksearch01 ~]$ esrally

Hi @Walter,

I don't see any problem in the logs. It seems that the cluster just started fine. The seccomp warning is ok here. However, it may have died because of too little memory (maybe it was killed by the OSes oomkiller?). Elasticsearch already tries to reserve 2GB of memory but you only have (less than) 2GB of memory. Can you try on a larger machine?

And by the way, the screenshot you have posted is from the instance that stores the metrics, not the instance that is benchmarked.


Hi @danielmitterdorfer
Thank you for your help!
I will raise the memory of machine to 4GB or more next monday. I will post the result here .
Thank again!

I'm sorry to tell you so late.
It worked when I Improve memory .
By the way,how to Handling Relationships is ES。
