I would suggest creating a regular scheduled alert (if you want to be notified sooner, have the small frequency like every 5 min or 2-59/* * * * * i.e. every 5 min starting at 2 min so 2, 7, 12,17...) and setup appropriate throttle period so that you're not alerted again (say throttle for 6 or 8 hours). Search that you can use (setup alert on license master splunk instance)

index=_internal source=*license_usage.log type=Usage earliest=@d latest=now
  | stats sum(b) as Usage | eval Usage=round(b/1024/1024/1024,2)
 | appendcols [ 
    | rest splunk_server=local /services/licenser/stacks 
    | stats max(quota) as quota
    | eval quota=round(quota/1024/1024/1024,2)
 ]
 | where Usage > 0.8*quota
