Elasticsearch incrase total_in_bytes Memory

Elasticsearch incrase total_in_bytes Memory

Problem Description:

I’m running a single node on an Ubuntu machine. Currently I have not enough space on my node.

"mem" : {
          "total_in_bytes" : 25217441792,
          "free_in_bytes" : 674197504,
          "used_in_bytes" : 24543244288,
          "free_percent" : 3,
          "used_percent" : 97

On the other hand when I execute the command df -h , I see that I still have enough space on my linux server

Please how can I increase the value of total_in_bytes ?

Solution – 1

df -h shows disk space, not memory.

If you want to increase the memory heap you can modify the jvm.options file.

# Xms represents the initial size of total heap space 
# Xmx represents the maximum size of total heap space 

Here heap will be 4gb. The recommendation is to set this parameter to 50% of the physical ram of the node, and not more than 32GB.
