Dear all

Since each warm bucket has its time span from earliest to latest, so if i wanna directly delete the warm bucket,for example, half a year ago, to expand disk volumn, are there any side-effect in doing this? or is it must be in normal process from hot->warm->cold>frozen? Thanks all.

As long as you do this while the indexer is not running, there is no harm to this, as long as you understand that this deletes all the data that is stored in that bucket.
