These properties define the disk space limits at which Humio will throttle itself to avoid filling the disks. When the primary disk cap is hit, Humio will attempt to use the secondary storage instead. If both caps are hit, the affected Humio node will pause processing of logs, and will avoid downloading segments from other nodes or buckets, until disk space is freed.
