Although Control Manager receives data from various log types, Control Manager allows users to query the log data directly from the Control Manager database. Users can then specify filtering criteria to gather only the data they need.
Control Manager also introduces log aggregation. Log aggregation can improve query performance and reduce the network bandwidth managed products require when sending logs to Control Manager. However, this comes at a cost of lost data through aggregation. Control Manager cannot query data that does not exist in the Control Manager database.
