Can the "Today's License Usage (GB)" panel from license server "Settings » Licensing » License Usage Reporting" be modified to run on a search head?

Here is the underlying SPL of the license server panel:

| rest splunk_server=local /services/licenser/pools 
| rename title AS Pool 
| search [rest splunk_server=local /services/licenser/groups 
| search is_active=1 
| eval stack_id=stack_ids 
| fields stack_id]
| join type=outer stack_id [rest splunk_server=local /services/licenser/stacks 
| eval stack_id=title 
| eval stack_quota=quota 
| fields stack_id stack_quota] 
| stats sum(used_bytes) as used max(stack_quota) as total 
| eval usedGB=round(used/1024/1024/1024,3) 
| eval totalGB=round(total/1024/1024/1024,3) 
| eval gauge_base=0 | eval gauge_danger=totalGB*0.8 
| eval gauge_top=totalGB+0.001 
| gauge usedGB gauge_base gauge_danger totalGB gauge_top

I assumed that to run it remotely as such that I could change "local" to the name of my license server, but that did not seem to work. Does anyone know how to run such a query on the search head?

Take a look at the distributed management console: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.2/DMC/DMCoverview

It's got license reports (amongst other things) so you should be able to run it from your search head if you configure it accordingly.

@lycollicott, What you did will work but only if your License Master is a search peer of your search head.

Why configure your no configure your License Master as a DMC.

Try adding the deployment server as Search Peer (Setting -> Distributed search -> Search peer) on your Search Head and then you should be able to run the Rest command on the remote server (by passing teh server name).

We recommend not running the DMC on a search head. Please review the relevant documentation on how to properly setup the DMC in your specific environment.

I stood up a dedicated DMC instance moments ago. 😉
