License impact using load balancing

Builder

Hello,

we have clustered indexers.

Could you confirm if the license usage is the same using these settings in the outputs.conf of universal forwarders :

[tcpout]
defaultGroup=indexer1,indexer2

[tcpout:indexer1]
server=10.1.1.197:9997

[tcpout:indexer2]
server=10.1.1.200:9997

I also noted it's possible to use this, however it may increase replication between indexers?

[tcpout:my_LB_indexers]
server=10.10.10.1:9997,10.10.10.2:9996,10.10.10.3:9995

Thanks a lot.

Why will it effect licensing?
License counts against data indexed in the indexers and ... that's it!
it does not count against replication, internal data etc.

why will this configuration increase replication on indexers?
