I am trying to limit the ability of indexing per day of for each of my indexes as follows:
indexA = 5GB
indexB = 3GB
indexC = 8GB
In my indexes.conf file I have the following:
[indexA] maxDataSize = 5120 [indexB] maxDataSize = 3072 [indexC] maxDataSize = 8192
However, this amount exceeds indexing daily. Am I doing something wrong or am I missing something? I'm grateful for your help.
Here is definition of maxDataSize -
maxDataSize = <positive integer>|auto|auto_high_volume * The maximum size in MB for a hot DB to reach before a roll to warm is triggered.
In case you want to limit indexing volume/day, you should ideally configure inputs.conf for the correct inputs or props.conf for event filtering.
I understand the use of inputs and props. But that more than anything is to filter or manipulate the data to be indexed, which already have done.
The detail is that my indexB usually consume 2.8GB, but sometimes exceeds 3.9GB, and this affects me. As always wanted to reach a maximum of 3GB per day.
May be this?
