Could someone explain Volumes in index Clusters / maxVolumeDataSizeMB?

Hi,

I'm not sure if i understand maxVolumeDataSizeMB correctly

Lets say, i have a volume stanza like this in an index cluster wih 4 peers:

 

 

[volume:volume_name]
path = /foo/bar
maxVolumeDataSizeMB = 5242880

 

 

How does Splunk handle the total volume capacity? Does every peerhas it's own 5TB in this volume until buckets roll or does maxVolumeDataSizeMB counts against the total volume size across all peers, e.g. 5TB/4?

The value applies to each indexer separately.  There is no coordination among indexers.
