KBI 310300 Log Consolidation Using Excessive Network Bandwidth


Argent Data Consolidator and Argent for Security – All Versions


1 Mar 2012


Customers using Argent Data Consolidator or Argent for Security may notice a lot of WAN bandwidth utilization while consolidating logs from servers located in remote offices.

The default Argent services used for log collection do not compress the collected logs when forwarding them from an Argent Engine located in a remote office to the central Argent database.

If this is a concern, then customers have the alternative option of using the Argent Event Log Reader service, which compresses the collected logs prior to forwarding them from a Remote Engine server to the central Argent database.

Technical Background
