WARNING:

The size of in-memory file system mounted at /dev/shm is “24576” megabytes which does not match the

/dev/shm setting is default so no size specified is in /etc/fstab:

$ grep shm /etc/fstab
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

 

/dev/shm has OS default setting:

$ df -m | grep shm
tmpfs 7975 646 7330 9% /dev/shm

Due to unpublished bug 19031737

SOLUTION

Since the size of /dev/shm is bigger than 2GB, the warning can be ignored.
