Is license usage metered on raw data only?

Is license usage metered on raw data only or does it include hosts. data,  source types. data, sources, and extracted search terms (assuming this is strings.data) as well?

License usage is based on your raw data volumes, not counting any data in the _internal index or any summary index. Based on your question, I assume you're looking in the bucket directory structure at these files. The rawdata files themselves don't necessarily correlate to license usage because they are compressed.

So search terms, Metadata fields are not a factor in defaultdb?

License is calculated against raw data and does not include the size of your metadata or indexes into your raw data.
