I have a chart count of Index using License usage using the below search. The search works fine but how to convert the usage from KB to MB.

index=_internal source=license_usage.log type="usage" idx=* earliest_time=-7d@d | convert timeformat="%F" ctime(_time)
| chart count over idx by _time | eval Time=strftime(_time,"%m-%d")

Thank you

You can add an extra line in the end to flip the axes

Try this: divide "b" by 1024*1024=104857, you will get the usage in MB:

index=_internal source=*.log source="license_usage.log"
type="usage" idx=* earliest_time=-7d@d
|eval UsageInMB = round(b/1048576,2) 
| convert timeformat="%F" ctime(_time)
| chart sum(UsageInMB) over idx by _time 
| eval Time=strftime(_time,"%m-%d")

Interesting. If somehow it doesn't work for you, I suggest downloading this app

https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2949/

and see if it shows all the meta data correctly.

Unfortunately I dont have permissions to download apps for our splunk environment.

Strange thing is, when I tried the same chart using time chart[1], I am able to retrieve data in MB. The issue was I wanted to swap X axis and Y axis, so I modified the search to use chart count. Any other suggestions?

[1]
index=_internal source=license_usage.log type="Usage" idx=* earliest_time=@w
| timechart span=1d limit=0 eval(round(sum(b)/1024/1024,3)) as MB by idx | sort -_time
