Increasing the use of container ram in docker-compose

I wrote the frontend application with react. But the application I wrote does not work in the container.

I found the reason causing stack overflow. So, I found it to be related to the use of ram.

How can I use the command structure at the address below in my docker-container? Does the structure in the link I gave solve the problem? can you help me ?

Node.js: what is ENOSPC error and how to solve?

Does increasing the container ram limit solve the problem?

Could you help ?

Your compose.yml does not have any ressource constraints for cpu/ram usage (for compose deployments; for swarm deployments), the container use all cpu/ram ressources available to the host.

In production people usualy define cpu and ram resource contraints to achive a predictable resource usage.

Make sure to that your upload folder uses a volume to store the uploaded data. If necessary, apply the suggested inotify related changes directly in your host os…

hello text,

How can I add the following code to the docker-compose.yml file?

The docker container worked with ulimit nofile. but I have to add it to the compose file

docker run -it --ulimit nofile=1024 frontend_web

Are you aware of the Compose file version 3 reference. You should make it a habit to look for configuration elements.

According to the reference, following is available even for the v3 spec:

version: '3'
      nproc: 65535
        soft: 20000
        hard: 40000


I am getting a “bad gateway” error again.
Why does react application not stand up

where am i making a mistake

Please share your default.conf. Sidenote: people usualy map an nginx.conf from the host to /etc/nginx/nginx.conf inside the container.

upstream frontend_server{
      server web:3000;

  listen 80;

  location /.well-known/acme-challenge/ {
      root /var/www/certbot;
  location / {
      return 301 https://$host$request_uri;

server {
    listen 443 ssl;

    ssl_certificate /usr/share/nginx/certificates/fullchain.pem;
    ssl_certificate_key /usr/share/nginx/certificates/privkey.pem;
    include /etc/ssl-options/options-nginx-ssl.conf;
    ssl_dhparam /etc/ssl-options/ssl-dhparams.pem;

  location / {
       proxy_pass http://frontend_server;
       proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
       proxy_set_header Host $host;
       proxy_redirect off;

       #Websocket support
       proxy_http_version 1.1;
       proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
       proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

Hmm, your nginx.conf looks about right. You even got the resolver for the docker network internal dns server covered.

I don’t remember ever using proxy_redirect off; and I am not sure if the missing space in upstream frontend_server{ has any negativ affect. Appart from that everything looks fine.

This is how I used to make the reverse proxy rule:

Use to make, because I switched to Traefik and it’s container/service label based rules…

yes everything is correct, but when i run it with “docker-compose up -d” one of the containers is closed.

it runs first, then exits from the container.

This explains why the reverse proxy has a problem with the upstream :slight_smile: So there was nothing wrong with it in the first place.

I could have helped you with the reverse proxy part, I am not able to help you with the react part. You need to check the logs of the web container and figure out what leads to the exit of the container.

I am now back to the previous version. But it gives the same error in the previous version.
I think it’s not reactjs error. as I understand the container does not work
