A Log Collector is a service that runs on a Log Decoder host (referred to as a Local Collector) or sends events from a Remote Collector to a Local Collector, and is configured and managed in a similar way to a Log Decoder. Therefore, most of the information in this section refers to Decoders in general. Differences for Log Collectors are noted.
