Engager

I want to see my daily usage but have it list by host instead of date.

Try

index=_internal source=*license_usage.log type=Usage 
| stats sum(b) as bytes by h 
| eval MB = round(bytes/1024/1024,1)
| fields h MB
| rename h as host

If you take a look at the license_usage.log, you will see lots of different ways that you can break down this report...

This query would show the results for total (When we selected the time as 'All Time')

Select the time range accordingly to the splunk local time on the license server to get the daily license usage per host

The license usage logs are available in License Master node. If your search head doesn't contain license OR in other words, you've a separate license master node (which is definitely the case per the error that you receive), The license usage logs is not available in the Search Head directly. What you can do is forward the logs from your license master node (mentioned in your log), to forwarder the data to Indexers, so that Search Head can access it.
