How to check index that consumes more license?

Hi, I am currently receiving an alert where the license consumption is exceeding 80%.

I need to know which index is consuming more license in the last 30 days or last 7 days.

This query shows the total license consumption but I need to know which index or sourcetype is generating the most license consumption.

 

`sim_licensing_summary_base`
            | `sim_licensing_summary_no_split("")`
            | append
                [| search (index=summary source="splunk-entitlements")
                  | bin _time span=1d
                  | stats max(ingest_license) as license by _time]
            | stats values(*) as * by _time
            | rename license as "license limit"
            | fields - volume

I'm not familiar with the sim_licensing_* macros so can't give very specific advise.  However, if there is a "sim_licensing_summary_no_split" macro then I have to think there is one similar to "sim_licensing_summary_by_index".

If not, then expand the macros (using CTRL-Shift-E) and modify the stats command to group results by index.
