Docker Redis container getting WARNING: /proc/sys/net/core/somaxconn in a user defined network
Hey guys I’m having a really hard time with this one and I need help. I need to run a Redis container on a user defined network and assign it a static ip so I have this:
docker run -v /root/test/:/data/ -p 7001:7001 --net iso_nw --ip 172.18.0.2 --name testy -d redis redis-server /data/redis.conf
This causes my Redis instance to display the TCP backlog warning:
WARNING: The TCP backlog setting of 65536 cannot be enforced because /proc/sys/net/core/somaxconn is set to the lower value of 128.
My brain is fried trying to make this warning go away without using
--net host. Can someone help me please. Thanks.

I figured it out. Ok first the TCP backlog setting that I’m trying to use is invalid. The max allowed value is 65535 which is a short unsigned int, so I updated my Redis config with this value.
Now I can run the container by loading /proc/ as a writable volume and echo the value:
docker run -v /root/test/:/data/ -v /proc/:/wproc/ -p 7001:7001 --net iso_nw --ip 172.18.0.2 --name testy -d redis echo 65535 > /wproc/sys/net/core/somaxconn && redis-server /data/redis.conf
