Docker Sandbox HDP2.5 memory problem

Docker Sandbox HDP2.5 memory problem

Super Collaborator

Hi,

I have insufficient memory on my Docker Sandbox. Hiveserver2 can not start because of it:

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM warning: INFO: os::commit_memory(0x00007f74b44d3000, 3183083520, 0) failed; error='Cannot allocate memory' (errno=12) # # There is insufficient memory for the Java Runtime Environment to continue. # Native memory allocation (malloc) failed to allocate 3183083520 bytes for committing reserved memory.

I tried allocating 8GB to the container by altering the start_sandbox.sh script:

docker run -v hadoop:/hadoop -m 8G --name sandbox --hostname "sandbox.hortonworks.com" --privileged -d \

But still I have only 2GB in the container:

top - 22:58:30 up 18 min,  2 users,  load average: 0.26, 1.47, 1.25
Tasks:  39 total,   1 running,  38 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie

From the docker docs I get that docker containers must actually be limited to not take all mem available on the host OS. This is confusing.

Please note the 'Total Memory: 1.952 GiB' this tells me the limit is somewhere on the Docker level, not the container level.

OK got it now,

The restriction was on the Docker host service level.

Just shift the Memory slider and then you should be fine.

How much memory you got on Host machine?

@Jasper,

You can use,

docker run -v hadoop:/hadoop --memory="8g" --name sandbox --hostname "sandbox.hortonworks.com"--privileged -d \

OR

docker run -v hadoop:/hadoop -m 8g --name sandbox --hostname "sandbox.hortonworks.com"--privileged -d \
