I am seeing lots of these error messages. What does it mean? Something I need to worry about?

These messages indicate that there was an attempt to match the presence of the bucket with ID 734 with it's sentinel file.

11-09-2010 19:29:32.445 ERROR DatabaseDirectoryManager::Bucket - Unable to find a directory for id = 734 when attempting to validate a sentinel.

This might happen if the bucket has been manually moved out of the index, or if it has been retired in compliance with the age/disk usage policies of that index and it's .sentinel file is still there.

You should be able to match the bucket ID with the corresponding directory db_{epoch_time_of_newest_event_in_bucket}_{epoch_time_of_oldest_event_time_in_bucket}_{bucketID} by consulting the .bucketManifest file found in that index.

Once the absence of the bucket from the index is confirmed and can be explained, the easiest fix to get rid of these messages is to remove the .sentinel file that goes along with the bucket with ID 734.
