Splunk fsck repair - cancelation


Hi All,

I recently started a fsck repair on all buckets for a particular index on one of my clustered indexers. Unfortunately I was unaware of how long it would take to run and how long it would keep our indexer down...

With that being said, im wondering what the repercussions of interrupting the processes might be?? I'm also concerned that the putty session (internet connection) that's running might time out before it completes. I'm assuming the repair would stop then?

Any advice on the best moves here would be appreciated as well as any info/risks that I'd be running if interrupted or potential cluster issues afterwards.
