WARNING: /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled is ‘always’.

After I install MongoDB 3.2.3 in Centos 7, I received this error when I start mongo in shell.

[[email protected] ~]# mongo
MongoDB shell version: 3.2.3

Solution

Create the init.d script.
Create the following file at /etc/init.d/disable-transparent-hugepages:

#!/bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          disable-transparent-hugepages
# Required-Start:    $local_fs
# Required-Stop:
# X-Start-Before:    mongod mongodb-mms-automation-agent
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: Disable Linux transparent huge pages
# Description:       Disable Linux transparent huge pages, to improve
#                    database performance.
### END INIT INFO

case $1 in
  start)
    if [ -d /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage ]; then
      thp_path=/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage
    elif [ -d /sys/kernel/mm/redhat_transparent_hugepage ]; then
      thp_path=/sys/kernel/mm/redhat_transparent_hugepage
    else
      return 0
    fi

    echo 'never' > ${thp_path}/enabled
    echo 'never' > ${thp_path}/defrag

    unset thp_path
    ;;
esac

Make it executable.
Run the following command to ensure that the init script can be used:

sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/disable-transparent-hugepages
sudo chkconfig --add disable-transparent-hugepages
