Monitoring Splunk

How do you estimate the storage sizing?

I was following the guidelines from this page on how to estimate the storage sizing as a learning excercise, but I do not seem to get any totals and I have uploaded some sample data into a index.

The document is http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.1/Capacity/Estimateyourstoragerequirements
Im using Splunk 7.1/RHEL6.5.

Command output:

cd /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/defaultdb

sudo du -ch hot_v*
du: cannot access `hot_v*': No such file or directory
0 total

Any thoughts?

You need to check DB size in /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/defaultdb/db for hot & warm buckets and for cold buckets please check in /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/defaultdb/colddb

There is another site (https://splunk-sizing.appspot.com/) on which you can calculate index and storage size.
