How to increase docker-machine memory Mac

0 votes

My VM needs 4GB of memory. I’m using the following command to do so

docker run --rm --net=host memsql/quickstart check-system

But I’m getting this error

Error: MemSQL requires at least 4 GB of memory to run.

What do I do?

when you create docker machine, you can nominate the memory size:

docker-machine create -d virtualbox --virtualbox-memory 4096 default


docker-machine stop
VBoxManage modifyvm default --cpus 2
VBoxManage modifyvm default --memory 4096
docker-machine start
