Is there a way to set a max size on the entire tsidxstats or even a single set of tsidxstats?
I have the Splunk for BlueCoat app running on a search head. It is filling up my disk even though /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/tsidxstats is a separate file system.
I can't find any way to limit the overall use of tsidxstats on a global or local level.
It turns out there is not a way to limit the size of tsidxstats by individual collections or in toto. This must be manually managed if tscollect is used to create the files.

There is an add-on called SA-UTILS which contains a file called tsidx_retention.conf , this file will give you the ability to age out these old tsidx files. More information about this file and process is documented in the below articles
