Hi nnips,
at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.0/Admin/Indexesconf you can find all the parameters to configure your indexes.
The way to check them is viewing indexes.conf file or (better) using Splunk Monitor Console.
Anyway, if you don't have special requirements, I usually set only global retention ( frozenTimePeriodInSecs ).
Bye.

Yes,
hot buckets are automatically rolled to warm and after to cold following the default or configured rules.

maxWarmDBCount it's The maximum number of warm buckets (see https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.0/Admin/Indexesconf )
to configure retention you have to use frozenTimePeriodInSecs that is expressed in seconds.
