Getting Data In

Why is indexing volume not matching license usage?

Following some runaway license violations, I am looking to find the offending host but in running the queries that I have, I am finding that the total "host usage" is far more than the "license usage".

I am using the following to show the usage per host:

index="_internal" source="*metrics.log" group="per_host_thruput" | eval mb = (round(kb,0)/1024) |chart sum(mb) by series | sort - sum(mb)

I am using the following to find the usage against the license:

index=_internal source=*license_usage* type=RolloverSummary  | bucket _time span=1d | eval MB_vol=b/1024/1024 | timechart span=1d sum(MB_vol) by pool

Is this correct? Is this related to this post? -- https://answers.splunk.com/answers/2886/indexing-volume-vs-data-size-received.html?utm_source=typeah...

type=RolloverSummary will only show the top 10 indexes. To see the total by host you can do something like:

index="_internal" source=*license_usage.log type=Usage | eval KB=round(b/1024) | eval MB=round(KB/1024,2) | eval GB=round(MB/1024,2) | eval TB=round(GB/1024,2) | stats sum(MB) as Total by h

Or by pool and day:

index=_internal source=*license_usage* type=Usage | bucket _time span=1d | eval MB_vol=b/1024/1024 | stats (MB_vol) by pool _time
