I had two large apps causing my knowledge bundle to time out. I deleted both app folders in etc apps and in etc user admin. The knowledge bundle has not shrunk and the warnings and errors continue:
04-16-2013 14:39:49.268 -0500 WARN DistributedBundleReplicationManager - bundle replication to 1 peer(s) took too long (10624ms), bundle file size=45110KB, replication_id=1366141178host=SERVER Options|
this will blacklist the above file (ntsyslog_mappings.csv) so it is not included in the knowledge bundle. You can make the name anything you like for each file you wish to backlist. Run a search on your etc/apps, etc/system, etc/users and blacklist large files that are not needed for the searches. Be careful not to get over zealous in what you blacklist. Hope this helps you.
I did. I think I have a solution. I'm going to add shareBundle=false into the distsearch.conf and restart. Then I'll change it to true and restart. I bet that will purge that old bundle info out of there. I'll post if it works.
