Hello,

I want to know a retirement policy of the fishbucket on the universal forwarder for a disk sizing.

  1. The data retention period for the fishbucket on the universal forwarder
  2. The maximum size for the fishbuket on the universal forwarder

Could you tell me about it?

Thanks.

Thank you for the information.
I have already checked this page.
I want to know whether a size of the fishbucket continue to expand even though "file_tracking_db_threshold_mb" parameter is set.
If you know about that, please let me know.

If that attribute is not working, you should report a bug.
Maybe your expectation and how the attribute works is different. In such case, doc/spec file needs to be improved.

Thank you very much for your comments.
I have tried that "file_tracking_db_threshold_mb" parameter set the value.
The result showed that the fishbucket rotated to "/opt/splunkforwarder/var/lib/splunk/fishbucket/splunk_private_db/save" directory according to the value, but the fishbucket data was growing up (total data volume of the fishbucket was continuing to increase).
Is this behavior according to the specification?
Please let me know about this.
