Splunk error

Hi,

I noticed a whole bunch of these in my S.O.S. Not sure what they mean - the filesystems are fine. Is somebody running too many searches?

Pretty sure that means that the user under which the search is being run has exceeded the disk usage quota. You should figure out which user runs the search in question. You could increase the usage quota for that user's role, or run the search as a different user.

Found it. Big search! Thanks.

Path Finder

Manager > Access controls > Roles

Each Role has a setting called "Limit total jobs disk quota". Perhaps the user in question (a515330) belongs to a role that has this set to 500 MB?

A disk quota within Splunk? I've never heard of this before - where is it configured?
