To start Minikube with more memory, you can use the --memory flag followed by the desired memory allocation in megabytes.


Here's an example of how you can start Minikube with 4GB of memory:

  1. Open your terminal or command prompt.
  2. Run the following command:
1
minikube start --memory=4096


This command starts Minikube with 4096MB (4GB) of memory allocated.


You can adjust the memory value according to your requirements.


Note: Keep in mind that the amount of memory you allocate to Minikube should not exceed the total available memory on your system.

To start Minikube with more memory allocation, ensure that you have Minikube installed on your system and you have a hypervisor such as VirtualBox or KVM configured. Follow these steps to start Minikube with increased memory allocation:

  1. Open your terminal or command prompt.
  2. Run the following command to start Minikube with a specific memory allocation (e.g., 4096 MB for 4GB of memory): minikube start --memory=4096
  3. Minikube will start with the specified amount of memory allocated. You can adjust the value after --memory= based on your requirements.
  4. It's important to note that the total memory allocated to Minikube should not exceed the available memory on your system to prevent performance issues.


By following these steps, you can start Minikube with increased memory allocation to better support your Kubernetes cluster deployments and applications.
