Hi, @thetooth. First of all, thanks for the feedback. As for the mentioned issues: - I think that's not a good idea to auto-restart crashed database. As far the reason for crash is unknown it could be not safe for the data to restart the service. Escpecially without limiting number of tries. I would also recommend to use monitoring for your services and make HA setup using cluser version ( - You can override service file. Not everyone needs extended limits. It can be implemented using any configuration management system (Ansible/Chef/Slat - whatever you are using) easyly.

Hi, this packages systemd file currently has some issues that prevent it being useful in a production environment.

First is there is no restart policy, which means if the process crashes large amounts of telemetry can be lost, suggest we add:


Secondly, on my system DefaultLimitNOFILE defaults to 1024, for datasets spanning the default retention period of 1 month this is fine, but for large or long running datasets, victoriametrics requires A LOT of file descriptors (counted 5716 on my setup) or it will die with too many files open.

@KawaiDesu no worry.

There is a mistake in victoriametrics.service file

When starting service, this warning appears in journalctl systemd[1]: /usr/lib/systemd/system/victoriametrics.service:5: Unknown key name 'Require' in section 'Unit', ignoring.

Require should be Requires
