Hi @Parth Gangrade, please upsize your instance, I think 4GB memory / 2 CPU is too small to run the services. I'd suggest at least 16GB / 8 CPU + 30GB disk. Please check this documentation about scaling airbyte. Feel free to continue the discussion on our forum if you have additional questions, we are moving the community support on this platform.

@Augustin Lafanechere (Airbyte) I scaled up the VM instance to 8 vCPU/ 16GB memory, still getting the same error.
