Hi jcspigler2010,

The window is the time period that the license's logic applies against.

For example, in general, Splunk licenses calculate and apply violations on a 30 day rolling window - aka, a window of time.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.6.2/Admin/Aboutlicenseviolations

If you exceed your licensed daily volume on any one calendar day, you get a violation warning. If you have 5 or more warnings on an enforced Enterprise license, or 3 warnings on a Free license, in a rolling 30-day period, you are in violation of your license. Unless you are using a Splunk Enterprise 6.5.0 or later no-enforcement license, search is disabled for the offending pool(s). Other pools remain searchable, as long as the total license usage from all pools is less than the total license quota for the license master.
