Minecraft crashing - unable to create thread #83

Ever since upgrading to the latest Minecraft server jar (1.13.2), the server crashes after a few seconds. I am seeing the following in minecraft-stderr.log:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create new native thread
	at java.lang.Thread.start0(Native Method)
	at java.lang.Thread.start(
	at java.util.concurrent.CompletableFuture$ThreadPerTaskExecutor.execute(

	at aev.<clinit>(SourceFile:137)
	at pf.c(SourceFile:470)
	at net.minecraft.server.MinecraftServer.main(SourceFile:794)

I suspect that this has something to do with the way the server wrapper starts the process, because if I manually kick of the server (by running java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server-run.jar nogui) it works fine.

Any help would be appreciated!

Sorry for the late reply. I am looking into this!

Hmmm, I'm not able to reproduce the issue myself yet. The only difference between how the server wrapper starts the server and the command above is the -Xms flag. If you're still playing around with it, here's one thing you can try. Open /opt/gamocosm/ On line 35 replace:

cmd = ['java', '-Xmx' + ram, '-jar', 'minecraft_server-run.jar', 'nogui']


cmd = ['java', '-Xms' + ram, '-Xmx' + ram, '-jar', 'minecraft_server-run.jar', 'nogui']

(i.e. add the '-Xms' flag).

You can confirm it's working by checking ps aux | grep minecraft when you start the server (via the Gamocosm UI) (before it crashes). It should list the processes running, which should look something like:

mcuser   11105 24.0 54.5 3107092 552488 ?      Sl   20:36   2:02 java -Xmx1024M -jar minecraft_server-run.jar nogui
mcuser   12878  0.0  0.1  11552  1052 pts/0    S+   20:44   0:00 grep --color=auto minecraft

(here you can see it was started as java -Xmx1024M -jar minecraft_server-run.jar nogui).

Also: what size is your server? Is it 1GB ram, or 512MB (i.e. an older server), or more?
