zookeeper doesnt start

New Contributor

Hi Team,

We are trying to bring up the HDP cluster via ambari. For some reason zookeeper doesn't come up. It is throwing the below log in /var/log/zookeeper/

"Error occurred during initialization of VM Too small initial heap"

Can you help on Probable debug steps.

Check SERVER_JVMFLAGS in /etc/zookeeper/conf/

It would be of the type: export SERVER_JVMFLAGS=-Xmx1024m

Try increasing the same via Ambari - zookeeper-env and restart zookeeper
