Monitoring Splunk

Minimum Free Disk Space Reached

New Member

I've Just set-up a new Single Instance Splunk Server (Version 7.3.2) on a VM with 200GB of space. I've not set up any indexes/searches/apps etc I've literally only run the installer and logged in to the web page.

Why am I getting the following error when I have so much free space on the VM?

"The minimum free disk space (5000MB) reached for /opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/dispatch"

Have you checked how that 200GB is configured in the VM's filesystem? Could it be that /opt is on a separate partition or so, and as such not able to make use of the full 200GB?

What does the df -h command tell you?

the space for dispatch files is full. It is possible that splunk is not able to cleanup the files that is being generated, check this article, this will assist you to cleanup the dispatch directory or even adjust the limits.conf for this configuration.

As was said above, it was a problem with my partitions. I resized the partition and it now works perfectly
