Hello Everyone,

This is a general question that I haven't found an answer to yet. I am aware of how a license violation is carried out.(https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.3/Admin/Aboutlicenseviolations#:~:text=What%20is%20....)

In a training course it was mentioned that license warnings are reported to Splunk, is that correct?

What I would like to know is the following:

  • Does Splunk receives anything?
  • Does Splunk receives messages at license warnings or violations?
  • Does Splunk receives messages, when a license pool goes in warning or violation?
  • What does Splunk receives?
    • Data Volume?
    • License ID

Thank you all for you help. 🙂

Hi

what I have understand is that Splunk collect that data to _telemetry index. There are telemetry.conf which define what data will (try to) send to Splunk. Also they have right (based on license agreement) to get this data from you side e.g. manually, if your installation cannot send it to splunk. Here is couple of links for more information:
