Why is the license breaching everyday since the upgrade to 7.1.2 from 6.5.3 version?

Explorer

Recently, I have upgraded my Splunk environment to 7.1.2 from 6.5.3 version. Since I upgrade the version, the license has been breaching every day.

So I started digging deep on what is consuming much and source details. Nothing changed in the number of sources or data. There is no increase in the number of events per file or even the size of the event remain the same. I am running out of ideas what to check next for this change in license consumption.

I know that it is a bit odd but any suggestions on what needs to be checked and conclude on the root cause? Thanks in advance.

start with this

index=_internal source=*license_usage.log type=Usage pool=* 
| stats sum(b) as b by pool st
| eval GBs=round(b/1024/1024/1024,2) 
| rename st as SourceType, GBs as "GB's Used" 
| fields SourceType "GB's Used" 
| sort - "GB's Used"

Hi @CarsonZa ,

I ran that query already and found the source consuming the most but there is no increase of logs in actual application server.
