A file that contains information about the amount of data your Splunk software installation or Splunk Cloud Platform environment is entitled to index in a single day. This amount is sometimes referred to as the license entitlement. In Splunk Enterprise, an entitlement can include multiple licenses distributed across a larger deployment of Splunk Enterprise instances.

Splunk Enterprise licenses are available in two types: Enterprise and Free.

Splunk Light and Hunk manage license entitlement differently from Splunk Enterprise, but the concepts are the same.
