Hello - Searched splunk.answers.com and found this. I have the same problem in a 6.6.4 environment in May 2018. How do I resolve this issue? Thanks.

Hi, I am getting the below error in splunkd.log :

07-24-2014 01:30:51.609 +0200 INFO BucketMover - will attempt to freeze: candidate='/opt/SP/apps/splunk/splunk-6.0.1/var/lib/splunk/rest/db/db13928232231392819715_1' because

frozenTimePeriodInSecs=2419200 exceeds difference between now=1406158251 and latest=1392823223
07-24-2014 01:30:51.664 +0200 ERROR BucketMover - sizeBytes=12288 candidateBytes=19456
07-24-2014 01:30:51.760 +0200 ERROR BucketMover - sizeBytes=1486336 candidateBytes=1574400

Please let me know how to solve this one !!

This event by itself is not a problem. It happens when data freezes.

To adjust when it occurs see the indexes.conf documentation (click on indexes.conf).

you would increase frozenTimePeriodInSecs to keep data longer. As it is currently set to 28 days according to the events... most of your data should be rolling to frozen when its older than 28-30 days. Depending on the data ingestion volume and other indexes.conf settings.

This website has a calculator that will even tell you how to set your indexes.conf: https://splunk-sizing.appspot.com/

Were you referring to the INFO message or to the:
07-24-2014 01:30:51.664 +0200 ERROR BucketMover - sizeBytes=12288 candidateBytes=19456
07-24-2014 01:30:51.760 +0200 ERROR BucketMover - sizeBytes=1486336 candidateBytes=1574400

?

The INFO message is definitely harmless here but I suspect the question is about the ERROR statements
