I was following the guidelines from this page on how to estimate the storage sizing as a learning excercise, but I do not seem to get any totals and I have uploaded some sample data into a index.
The document is http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.1/Capacity/Estimateyourstoragerequirements
Im using Splunk 7.1/RHEL6.5.
sudo du -ch hot_v*
du: cannot access `hot_v*': No such file or directory
here are some docs which will guide you about storage sizing.
let me know if this helps you!
You need to check DB size in /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/defaultdb/db for hot & warm buckets and for cold buckets please check in /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/defaultdb/colddb
There is another site (https://splunk-sizing.appspot.com/) on which you can calculate index and storage size.
ok many thanks
