SEDCMD and license volume

When using SEDCMD to strip data from an event, does the entire event count toward license usage, or only the portion of the event that is actually retained?


For example, if I have an event like:

Field1=Something|Field2=SomethingReally....Long|Field3=SomethingElse

And apply:

SEDCMD=s/Field2=[^|]+//g

Will the contents of Field2 count against the license cap?

gkanapathy has previously stated that SEDCMD substitutions happen before license accounting. So, no, the contents of Field2 should not be included in your license usage.

Ah, good catch! I looked for the previous answer but missed it somehow.
