this is one way:

earliest=-1d@d latest=@d  index=_internal source=*license_usage.log* type=Usage
| stats sum(b) AS Bytes by h
| eval GB = Bytes/1024/1024/1024
| table h GB
| sort -GB

explore the data h stands for host
there are many many ways to get this data and quick search in this portal will prompt you to dozens of results
hope it helps

Adonio, thanks for your reply, unfortunately the query you gave returned 0 records.
i tried running this on the forwarder where i am inserting data via file inputs.

also i could not find any other document which can give me a ingest rate ..

Sir, how would I calculate he total amount of ingestion into an average server if only logs & small / Med DBs are ingested into the Splunk server? Thanks a million in advance.
