Is there a way to send an automated alert for various types of licensing violations?

Is there a way to send an automated alert for various types of licensing violations. It would be useful to get an automated alert when certain high water marks are reached, i.e. 90% used. And also get alerts with the maximum has been exceeded.

Yes. If you are using Splunk 6.0, you can set an alert for any of the searches in the License Usage Report View. See Use the License Usage Report View in the Admin Manual. If you are using Splunk 5.x, install the Splunk on Splunk app and you will have access to the same views for your Splunk 5.x installation.

We use Splunk 5. Our license is stored on a license server. Will Splunk on Splunk allow me to view the License Usage and can I configure it to send alerts?

When you say "license server", you mean a Splunk instance running as a license master, right?

i don't like this approach. splunk needs to have alert "channels" or some other sort of groups of issues / alerts etc more easily subscribed to. without it - the tool remains extremely difficult to use out-of-box. doesn't look like major strides in usability are being made in this department.

Starting in version 6.2, Splunk Enterprise ships with a few preconfigured alerts (including one for license usage) that you can enable in the distributed management console. Read about Platform alerts in the Admin Manual.
