Does writing to summary index count towards indexing license?


I am collecting some statistics based on the indexed data and saving the results in summary index. I am doing this every minute. I want to know if this collected data and store in summary index counts towards the index/day limit as per the license?

As of version 4.0.10 and 4.1, summary indexed data DOES NOT count against your license.


As long as you don't change the sourcetype=stash.
If you send to a different sourcetype it will count toward your license usage.
