[SmartStore]Splunk configured with s3 compatibility smartstore reporting bad connection HTTP sttaus code 400

Splunk Employee
Splunk Employee

Our indexers are configured to use s3 compatibility remotepath, ans were seeing lots of 400 status code returned when Splunk makes calls to S3
The isolated all URI contains a parameter "&delimiter=guidSplunk". URI with parameters that does not have the parameter "delimiter=guidSplunk" all have the paramter "versions" parameter no value and those succeeds. For example:

Failing URI:
/secsplunk-idx-sysmon?max-keys=1000&prefix=sysmon%2Fdma%2F55%2Fe5%2F1595~BED2107F-430E-49FC-8449-949FA7F70D51&delimiter=guidSplunk

Succedding URI:
/secsplunk-idx-sysmon?versions&max-keys=1000&prefix=sysmon%2Fdb%2F55%2Fe5%2F1595~BED2107F-430E-49FC-8449-949FA7F70D51%2FguidSplunk-BED2107F-430E-49FC-8449-949FA7F70D51%2Frawdata%2Fslicesv2.dat

The issue turned out to be s3 compatibility storage does not support a delimiter "string" but just a delimiter character, so Splunk need to apply configuration change to disable delimiter.

Due to this change in delimiter within Splunk Code will have to parse through a lot more object names to find buckets, and it will be inefficient.

So, Splunk will end up disabling the delimiter, which will mean the object listings will be inefficient. This is one of the limitations of not having full aws s3 compatibility.

In server.conf

remote.s3.use_delimiter = true | false
* Optional.
* Specifies whether a delimiter (currently "guidSplunk") should be   used to list the objects that are present on the remote storage.
* A delimiter groups objects that have the same delimiter value so that the listing process can be more efficient as it  
    does not need to report similar objects.

* Defaults to: true
