maximum number of cgroups reached (1000)

I upgraded to 1.44 and I’m getting a lot of errors that say 'maximum number of cgroups reached (1000). Is there a way to raise the limit?

I found it

    # netdata server resources = yes
    # check for new plugin every = 10
    # enable cpuacct stat = on demand
    # enable cpuacct usage = on demand
    # enable memory = on demand
    # enable blkio = on demand
    # path to /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuacct = /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuacct
    # path to /sys/fs/cgroup/blkio = /sys/fs/cgroup/blkio
    # path to /sys/fs/cgroup/memory = /sys/fs/cgroup/memory
    # max cgroups to allow = 50

Hi, @data-smith. Fixed in latest netdata/pull/16730

For the stable version: change the logs severity level to “warning” (it will remove all info lines including that one).

In netdata.conf

  level = warning
