Too many open files /var/lib/elasticsearch doesn't exist on the nodes


(José Andrés) #1

Can someone elaborate as to why the exception below is thrown?

[2014-08-11 11:27:41,189][WARN ][cluster.action.shard ] [mycluster]

Thank you very much for your feedback.

It seems that this particular node is complaining about too many open
files. This usually happens if you have very low limits on your operating
system and/or if you have many shards on a single node. When this happens,
things degrade pretty badly as there is no way to open new files anymore.

Please see
http://www.elasticsearch.org/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/setup-configuration.html#file-descriptors
for more information.
