https://answers.splunk.com/answers/231310/calculating-the-percentage-growth-value-of-a-field.html
and also many ways to calculate the size and growth of an index ...
here is a quick draw, i hope you will find it useful:

index=_internal source=*license_usage.log type="Usage" idx IN(proxy Dns windows Linux Firewall)
| bin _time span=1d 
| eventstats sum(b) as daily_b by idx _time 
| eval daily_mb = daily_b/1024/1024
| stats max(daily_mb) as total_daily by _time idx
| streamstats window=30 current=f global=f avg(total_daily) as running_avg by idx
| eval ten_percent_on_top = running_avg + running_avg/10
| eval flag = if(total_daily>ten_percent_on_top,"Alarm","All Good")

note, this search can get expensive as the data is verbose. its recommended to summarize your daily license stats and query the summary index with the data
