Splunk Search

ERROR DispatchCommand : maximum disk usage quota has been reached


Hi,In my appname/local/ dir,authorize.conf's configuration information:

srchDiskQuota   = 20000
srchJobsQuota   = 3
rtSrchJobsQuota = 6

srchDiskQuota   = 20000

but when I run "splunk cmd python $path/fill_summary_index.py -app $app -namefile $searchfile -et $et -lt $lt -j $jobs -dedup $dedup -showprogress $showprogress -auth $auth -owner admin ",it appeared the same errors again and again.

This is the error message:

ERROR DispatchCommand - Your maximum disk usage quota has been reached. usage=10600MB quota=10000MB user=splunk-system-user. The search was not run. Use the [[/app/search/job_management|Job Manager]] to delete some of your saved search results. SearchId=scheduler__nobody__search_SW5kZXhpbmcgd29ya2xvYWQ_at_1341376200_0d2f591dda7709d3.
What should I do?

did you check the settings form your authorize.conf is active?

"splunk btool --debug authorize list"
