Deployment Architecture

Is maxWarmDBCount affected by db_ and rb_ files? Or just db_ files?

Explorer

Hi,

I'm running out of space so I want to add the maxWarmDBCount parameter to move buckets from warm to cold (cold buckets are in another path so no storage problems).

Inside the db folder I have these different files:

hot_*
db_*
rb_*
number_
CreationTime
GlobalMetaData
_splunktemps

I know rb_ are the replicated buckets from other indexes but I'm not sure if the maxWarmDBCount only counts de db_ files or the rb_ as well, and possibly the number_ files, as I don't know what these are.

If the total count inside db folder is 213 files and 192 of these are db_ and rb_ files. Would be okay to set maxWarmDBCount to 150?
Thanks.
