When during the day does the daily usage allowance refresh?

Path Finder

Hi,

When is Splunk's daily usage allowance is refreshed exactly?

Is it done at midnight relative to the time set on the host or is it refreshed by an external mechanism when usage statistics are uploaded?

I am building a mechanism for disabling indexing for a variable period of time and this information will be very useful to me.

Appreciate the information.

James.

the checkpoint for licensing usage is performed at midnight local time on the Splunk host that is serving as your licening master.

per http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/latest/Admin/Aboutlicenseviolations

"If you get a violation warning, you have until midnight (going by the time on the license master) to resolve it before it counts against the total number of warnings within the rolling 30-day period."

So what does "you have until midnight to resolve it" mean? How do you resolve it? Is there a technical solution (e.g. deleting data) or is the only solution to increase the license?

Seeing as Splunk is a distributed architecture, and you can have many indexers, I believe that it means that you would assign more license capacity to the affected indexer. In a single server environment, I don't think it's meaningful.
