Error with the Watch Changer Function


I am having this error on multiple folders when I enable the watch changer in the advanced settings of a folder I add:

failed to setup inotify handler. Please increase inotify limits, see

I have followed the faq and I logged into the linux command and add up to 1,000,000 and it is still doing this. I have even restarted syncthing and I am still having a problem. Please note, I have this running inside of Docker using Portainer. I have this running on other NAS using Docker and Portainer and there are no issues with this error at all.

I don’t think docker will inherit these settings. You should check docker documentation to see if there is a way to pass custom sysctl parameters to docker.
