Problems / Solutions

Elasticsearch does not start.

On some system the Elasticsearch server does not start due to the vm.max_map_count kernel limit.

mesh-elasticsearch | [1]: max virtual memory areas vm.max_map_count [65530] is too low, increase to at least [262144]

Solution see:


Placing the Elasticsearch data directory on NFS should be avoided since using NFS with Elasticsearch can lead to an unstable and slow search server.
