Understanding Log Aggregation

Control Manager log aggregation provides a way for administrators to decrease the impact that managed products have on network bandwidth. By configuring log aggregation administrators can choose which log information managed products send to Control Manager.


Log aggregation comes at a cost. Information that managed products do not send to Control Manager is lost. Control Manager cannot create reports or queries for information the server does not have. This can raise issues if information that seems unimportant, and managed products drop, later becomes of critical importance with no way to recover the dropped data.
