Having a look a graylog but it wont work


(Gzcwnk) #1

Following this,

http://docs.graylog.org/en/latest/pages/installation/docker.html

I copy and pasted in this,

$ docker run --name mongo -d mongo:3
$ docker run --name elasticsearch \
    -e "http.host=0.0.0.0" -e "xpack.security.enabled=false" \
    -d docker.elastic.co/elasticsearch/elasticsearch:5.5.1
$ docker run --link mongo --link elasticsearch \
    -p 9000:9000 -p 12201:12201 -p 514:514 \
    -e GRAYLOG_WEB_ENDPOINT_URI="http://127.0.0.1:9000/api" \
    -d graylog/graylog:2.3.0-1

and it wont work.

in the elasticsearch logs reported by rancher it looks like lack of a resource?

3/10/2017 2:40:31 PM[1]: max virtual memory areas vm.max_map_count [65530] is too low, increase to at least [262144]

I am on ubuntu 16.04 as a vm on vmware esx6. The spec of the VM is 2 pcu and 6gb of ram.

I assume somehow I need to give elesticsearch more vm.max_map_count? how do I do this?

Also why is the default too small to run the setup for testing?


(Gzcwnk) #2

To answer my own Q it seems the default vm.max_map_count ie virtual memory is too low as per, elasticdocs

So to fix it,

cd /etc/sysctl.d/
vi 99-docker.conf 

and add,

vm.max_map_count=262144

and reboot
