If you have three locations(Bangalore, Mumbai, Noida) to collect logs and you have 1 Logdecoder and 2 VLC's, your SA deployment in Mumbai where Logdecoder can be deployed to collect logs and remaining two (Bangalore,Noida) locations send logs via 2 VLC's.
In your case, your throughput may demand more logdecoders and you are collecting two remote locations.
In local site deployment also, you can send logs from VLC to Logdecoder.
Thanks Anuj. Really useful as i am new and going through only documentation.

VLC is for collecting Logs it depends on your DC Architecture and your requirement, you can use VLC as a Log collector where ever u want to collect logs from couple of different devices
I could see 4 Log Decoder --> Log Decoder also has a Log collection service which you can use to collect logs from local Domain/Local site.
--and 2 vlc at the same site(DC),-> I think you have started working in an environment which is already been deployed before. The reason behind deploying Multiple VLC at the same site (DC) can be "If you want to collect logs from different event sources and want to increase the performance of your setup by categorizing different vlc for different event source"
For better understanding why their are multiple VLC :
VLC1 = Event source (Windows servers, Linux Serves)
VLC2 = Event source (Proxy Devices, Firewall devices, network devices)
VLC3 = Event Source (Mainframe, ETC)
why these additional VLC here? for different Event sources in a same DC Might be the reason.
Hope you finds it Helpfull.
