i need to know is if i'm sending 10 MB file to splunk instance free license from a universal forwarder and splunk only index the changes in that logs ( the delta changes ) would it count the total size of the logs as computed or just the changes in that logs?

The normal behaviour is that the forwarder keeps track of the file and sends only 'new' events onwards to the indexer. (pretty much like 'tail' in nix)
