we set the buckets to roll from hot into cold for 90 days, but for some reason is not doing it and we are running low on space. How can I manually move buckets from to cold to free space

 

Thank you

Buckets normally move from hot to warm to cold rather than from hot directly to cold.

The default lifespan for a hot bucket is 90 days, after which it should roll to warm.  This can be changed with the maxHotSpanSecs attribute in indexes.conf.  You can also force a roll using REST or by restarting the indexer(s).

For a list of other attributes that affect index retention at each level, see https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.6/Indexer/Configureindexstorage
