Deployment Architecture

Why has data archiving stopped after archiving only two buckets?



I have data more than 2 years old in Splunk. I want to archive data which is older than 18 months to AWS s3 buckets.
For this I add following settings in indexes.conf:

frozenTimePeriodInSecs = epoch for 6 months
coldToFrozenDir = path to the s3 buckets

But still archiving has been stopped after archiving two buckets. There is no error in _internal logs.

Could anybody please help in this?


Could you check the timestamps of your buckets?
Only Buckets in wich ALL Data is older than the frozenTimePeriodInSecs are archived.

If you have large buckets over a huge timespan this could take a while.

Maybe you could take a look at the maxHotSpanSecs parameter for the future.
