AWS container service: set max_map_count
I’m trying to run Elasticsearch on AWS container service. Here the documentation that I’m following: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/docker.html#docker-cli-run-prod-mode
The vm_map_max_count setting should be set permanently in
Error unmounting Docker - invalid argument Nagvis 404 error using Shinken in a Docker container DigitalOcean, Docker, Dokku: Installing Firefox inside a container how do I clean up /dev/mapper/docker and release space? how to deploy .net core web api to linux machine how could I add user permission parameter into docker-compose
$ grep vm.max_map_count /etc/sysctl.conf
To apply the setting on a live system type: sysctl -w
Is there any way to set the vm.max_map_count via script? I don’t want to do it manually every time I run a new container.

You could still set it permanently in /etc/sysctl.conf as per you’ve mentioned in your Q. Didn’t it work?
as per this ticket you could set it up as follows:
sysctl -qw vm.max_map_count=65535
Hope it helps!
I found a solution:
- create an empty container
- Launch an EC2 inside the previous container: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonECS/latest/developerguide/launch_container_instance.html
- Add the user data (http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/user-data.html) as follow:
#!/bin/bash echo vm.max_map_count=262144 >> /etc/sysctl.conf sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144
Now the EC2 instance is properly configured.
