How can I find out how much data Splunk is indexing? Before I found something that gave me the Peak daily usage, Avg daily usage, and Avg daily usage for the top 5 days over the last 30 days, but I cant find this anymore. Can someone point me to where to look?

If you are using Splunk 6.0, use the new License Usage Report View. If you are using Splunk 5.x, install the latest version of the Splunk on Splunk app and it has the same view for your 5.x environment.

Thanks. I dont know if it changed in one of the updates, but there used to be a screen (I think from the manager tab) that showed you all the information for total data indexed for your license.

I also suggest that you install the Splunk on Splunk (SOS) app...
