Hi, splunkers:

Is there any way to special the storage ratio? Like 30% log store on indexer A and the other 70% store one indexer B?

Hi @aojie654,
I think that you're speaking of two not clustered indexers.
You can analyze your data and divide indexes to have the needed percentages of storages; in other words put the indexes that summarize around the 30% of data on Indexer1 and the other indexes on Indexer2, this also means that you have to modify all the inputs.conf of your TAs.

If instead you're speaking of two clustered Indexers it isn't possible.

One thing you can do is put the second indexer in your list of outputs twice, and the first indexer once (if you are using round robin DNS, put it in your DNS entry twice, otherwise, just put it in the outputs.conf twice).

ie, in your outputs.conf, put:

server = server1, server2, server2
