Getting Data In

How do I get license usage per indexer using the Distributed Management Console?

Explorer

I'm trying to use the licensing dashboard in DCM, splunk 6.4.1. For a 30 day by indexer it runs:

`dmc_licensing_base_summary(node065.serverfarm.cornell.edu," ")` | `dmc_licensing_summery_indxr(splunkmaster.serverfarm.cornell.edu, dmc_licensing_stack_size_srch, node065.serverfarm.cornell.edu, "", " ")` 

I get no results found.

node065 is the hostname, but the name in the configuration files, and what it returns in searches, is splunkmaster. If I replace node065 with splunkmaster it works fine.

The macro is using $host$. Where does that come from?

Settings->User Interface->views->license_usage*

It was looking up hostName and serverName and setting host=row.host. Changing it to row.serverName solved the problem. Of course I don't know what problems that might cause elsewhere in the app.

License usage for last 30 days can be viewed by going through :

Settings > Monitoring console > Indexing > license usage >licenseusage30days

mgh4,

Doing the same did not help me. I am able to pull the License Usage Today, but not able to pull the license usage previous 30 days. I followed your recommendations and it did not help. Though settings in both are the same.
