Has the "main" index been replaced by "default" since Splunk 6.3?

Path Finder

It seems that since my upgrade to Splunk 6.3 from 6.1, a new index called "default" has appeared. Also, since then, my license usage has increased. I am not sure if they are related.

Hi,

I can only speak for myself, but in 6.3.1 the main index is still present and there's no "default" index.

Maybe you installed an TA that created that index?

Kind regards

Thanks, I did install the Unix add on and app. However my split license usage does not show main anymore. It only shows default , os and one other that I created. Definitely new behavior since my upgrade.

I have the SplunkTAnix as well, thats not it.

Try to have a look inside the indexes.conf. Maybe you can see something there about the main index. It should be in there.

SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default( or local)/indexes.conf

main is still in there as a definition bu the path is: homePath = $SPLUNK_DB/defaultdb/db

Not really sure what it was called before or if it was always called this. I do know that main was always the "default" index

Thats mine, should be the default:

[main]
    homePath   = $SPLUNK_DB/defaultdb/db
    coldPath   = $SPLUNK_DB/defaultdb/colddb
    thawedPath = $SPLUNK_DB/defaultdb/thaweddb
    tstatsHomePath = volume:_splunk_summaries/defaultdb/datamodel_summary
    maxMemMB = 20
    maxConcurrentOptimizes = 6
    maxHotIdleSecs = 86400
    maxHotBuckets = 10
    maxDataSize = auto_high_volume
