Collectors

After the initial installation 8MAN runs one collector installed on the 8MAN server itself.

 

Additional collectors may be installed for the following reasons:

 

1.You want to connect remote resources. Installing collectors on remote systems reduces the WAN footprint and improves performance when performing scans or making access rights changes.

2.Some resource types and 8MATEs require the installation of additional collectors, for example FS Logga for Windows Fileserver.

3.Load balancing.

4.To incorporate foreign domains (non-trusted) a collector must be installed. Please see Collectors in foreign domains (non-trusted) for more details.

 

More information can be found in the following chapter: 8MAN Architecture.
