There isn't a way to set RF for different buckets, right? e.g. hot RF 2, cold no RF
We're using smartstore, therefor S3 is handling cold bucket replication and it would drastically reduce the storage cost if we could only have RF for hot buckets.
I've see this post, but it's been a few years.
You're correct @gjanders , the empty directories got me. Thank you for your help. Those looking for the doc: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.0/Indexer/IndexerclusteroperationsandSmartStore
For example, if the cluster has a replication factor of 3, three peer nodes continue to maintain metadata information, along with populated or empty directories, for each bucket.
By maintaining metadata for each bucket on the replication factor number of peer nodes, the cluster simplifies the process of fetching the bucket when it is needed, in the case of any interim peer node failure.
