Monitoring Splunk

How to resolve error "The minimum free disk space (5000MB) reached for /opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/dispatch"?

Communicator

I have this problem:
The minimum free disk space (5000MB) reached for /opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/dispatch.

So I cannot delete my data because splunk is full, I have tried to digit from command line :

   ./splunk clean eventdata -f

and I have tried to erase all my log from the splunk folder, but I have still the same problem.
Please can someone help me?

You made the value larger? So now it is expecting 20GB free? What is your free disk space left on your host? Is this running on a laptop or something with very little disk space left?
