Re: License usage for one index broken down by sourcetype

If you find yourself needing to break out license usage statistics often, you might find it helpful to check out the License Usage app, which includes queries for license usage by index/sourcetype/etc.

But in particular, this question had a good answer that breaks out license usage by indexname and sourcetype:

Try this

index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd source=*license_usage.log type=Usage idx=YourIndexHere
| stats sum(b) as usage by idx st | eval usage_MB=round(usage/1024/1024,3)
| rename idx and index st as sourcetype

index=_internal source="*/license_usage.log" component=LicenseUsage idx=<your index>
| timechart sum(b) AS b BY st

In the license usage events idx is the index and st is the sourcetype that the licensing metrics are detailing.

Start here -

index=_internal source=*license_usage.log* Usage 
| eval s=coalesce(s,"unknown"), eval st=coalesce(st,"unknown") 
|  stats sum(b) as bytes by idx s st
