Before you begin reading this guide, we recommend you run Elasticsearch Error Check-Up which can resolve issues that cause many errors.

This guide will help you check for common problems that cause the log ” JVM arguments ” to appear. It’s important to understand the issues related to the log, so to get started, read the general overview on common issues and tips related to the Elasticsearch concepts: node.

Log Context

Log “JVM arguments {}” classname is Node.java.
We extracted the following from Elasticsearch source code for those seeking an in-depth context :

            logger.info("JVM arguments {}"; Arrays.toString(jvmInfo.getInputArguments()));
            warnIfPreRelease(Version.CURRENT; Build.CURRENT.isSnapshot(); logger);

            if (logger.isDebugEnabled()) {
                logger.debug("using config [{}]; data [{}]; logs [{}]; plugins [{}]";
                    environment.configFile(); Arrays.toString(environment.dataFiles()); environment.logsFile(); environment.pluginsFile());


Run the Check-Up to get a customized report like this:
