  1. that is Homemade image FROM centos7; ADD oracle jdk8_202

  1. I tried to use openjdk, the result is the same
➜  ~ docker run --rm -m 1g openjdk:8u191-jre-alpine java -XshowSettings:vm -XX:+PrintFlagsFinal -version | grep -Ei "maxheapsize|maxram|UseContainerSupport"
    uintx DefaultMaxRAMFraction                     = 4                                   {product}
    uintx MaxHeapSize                              := 8342470656                          {product}
 uint64_t MaxRAM                                    = 137438953472                        {pd product}

     bool UseContainerSupport                       = true                                {product}

I don’t know where is the problem

Looking forward to the master’s reply or solution ideas
