Why am I getting a warning about disk space when minFreeSpace is 5000 and there's 83GB available?

The disk usage is at 17% and inode usage is at 1%. The error message from Splunk Web says minFreeSpace is 5000 and free space is 85711:

03-03-2020 16:16:48.266 +0000 WARN DiskMon - MinFreeSpace=5000. The diskspace remaining=85711 is less than 2 x minFreeSpace

This could be from your index max size ? Not sure though, very new to splunk but that would make sense.

check your indexes.conf & server.conf for data roll

Check this formula
LocalDiskSpace = minFreeSpace + (maxHotBuckets * maxDataSize) + (maxWarmDBCount * maxDataSize)

Refer below-mentioned link for more details
