How can I move a specific report package or the whole Content Store between two different TCR servers ? This is a question I often received, so I think it is time to finally write it down a blog post about this argument.

These strings allow the agent to filter the log data according to patterns in the format file, and submit only the interesting data to an event consumer. More information about these can be found in the LFA user... [More]
