How to fix a disk space warning for /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/audit/db

The diskspace remaining=8376 has breached the yellow threshold for filesystems=[/opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/audit/db]
06-18-2019 14:30:39.377 -0500 WARN DiskMon - MinFreeSpace=5000. The diskspace remaining=8376 is less than 2 x minFreeSpace

In the .../audit dir only db has data, nothing in colddb etc...

I am not sending them to a frozen path, I was hoping they would roll...

How do I set this to roll or drop after it reaches 2GB?

If you would rather roll data out by time or space limit, that's something for indexes.conf and you can see how to do that here:
