There is message on our search heads as well.

The number of search artifacts in the dispatch directory is higher than recommended (count=7391, warning threshold=5000) and could have an impact on search performance.

Splunk Version:8.1.3

We have been having the splunkhot buckets reach to 90% utilization and trying to figure out the solution. But after patching,things seem to go bit worse. Please help me guys :/.

how you did update? And which Splunk version you have?

There is a bug on 8.1.3+ which can cause this kind of behavior.

Can you reboot CM and see if those ask vanished (temporary) from fi list?
