Positioning Log Servers

Log Servers store engine-generated logs and traffic captures. Several Log Servers can be located both on a central site as well as at remote sites.

The transferred amounts of data can be substantial, so the primary concern for Log Server deployment is the number and throughput of the engine components that send data to the Log Server. A single shared Log Server can be sufficient for a number of remote sites with low traffic volumes, whereas a large office with very high volumes of network traffic might require even several Log Servers for efficient use.
