Can i define the time to search logs in colddb, db, datamodel or frozen

Explorer

It is posible change the time to specify the time of the storage in coldb or db. I have some index configurated in splunk enterprise. If it is posible, I need to do the configuration index by index?
or only in "indexes.conf" that is located in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local

I need to assure the logs one year in splunk.

regards.

Hey,

there is a good explanation in the "Set a retirement and archiving policy" part of the docs.

Those settings can be configured per index, and you're most likely looking for frozenTimePeriodInSecs, which defaults to ~6 years, after which (by default) the data is deleted.
You also have to make sure that your index maximum size is big enough, because Splunk will delete data earlier when an index reaches it's maximum size.

Hope that helps - if it does I'd be happy if you would upvote/accept this answer, so others could profit from it. 🙂
