Upsource 2020.1 Help

Error: "Unable to lock JVM memory (ENOMEM)"

Upsource continuously shows "Indexing in progress" for some (all) revisions, or Apache Cassandra database gets restarted on a regular basis. Going through Upsource logs you encounter the following error:

Unable to lock JVM memory (ENOMEM). This can result in part of the JVM being swapped out, especially with mmapped I/O enabled. Increase RLIMIT_MEMLOCK or run Cassandra as root


Too many open files..


Insufficient resource limits may result in this kind of error. To mitigate this, we recommend setting:

  • maximum open files to 100000

  • memory locking and address space limit to unlimited

  • number of processes to 32768

You can do it by adding the following lines to the /etc/security/limits.conf file:

* - memlock unlimited * - nofile 100000 * - nproc 32768 * - as unlimited
