Extend maximum number of containers per node


(Sergey Bushnyak) #1

I have Node deployed from DO with 4GB RAM and can’t run on it more than 8 containers. Getting messages similar to this

frontend:Candidate node ca8945de-668a-42c4-b28a-e596ee41d990.node.dockerapp.io. 
State: Unreachable. Total num containers: 4. Num containers from this service: 0

Even on local machine with same RAM I can run ~20 containers.

How can I fix this to run more containers per Node?
