How does logging service work?

When a logging service is enabled on the controller, the controller pushes the logging configuration and modules(if needed) to the controller and to all the gateways. Once this done, the logs flow from each of the Aviatrix Network Components directly to the logging server/service. Please make sure that you have a path from each of these components to the logging server/service.

When a new gateway is created later or if a gateway goes through forced-upgrade or through replace-gateway, they go through the same process as described above.
