nfs failure behaviors

Contributor

If you're using nfs for cold, and the nfs goes away for awhile, what happens?

What happens to rolling?

Does Splunk just sit on the buckets in hot/warm until it can copy them?

What about searches that involve these buckets that are now in limbo?

This probably depends, in part, on how your NFS is configured. An NFS hard mount that is unresponsive could freeze your splunkd -- or at least one or more threads -- until the NFS server does respond again. A soft mount would return an error back to splunk, which may be the more interesting case for your question.
