How do I disable log collection for individual log type

Let's say you're collecting logs from different sources like Windows event logs, SQL server logs, and Cassandra logs. If you notice that you're reaching the log upload limit for the month you can choose to disable collection for one of the log types, say Cassandra logs, while continue log collection for SQL server logs and Apache access logs.

To do this, navigate to Admin > AppLogs > Log  Types > Cassandra Logs (or any  log type for which you want to disable collection) > Disable auto discovery.

When this is done, auto discovery will be disabled and logs from the newly installed servers will not be added to the log profile.

To stop log collection from servers that already have 'Cassandra logs' log profile configured:

1. Open the corresponding Log Profile.

2. From the drop-down Associate this log profile with these servers deselect all servers or the ones that consume most space.

 If you've selected a monitor group(s) from which application logs can be uploaded, deselect them as well.

 Note: Logs that are already collected for the current billing cycle cannot be removed until the next billing cycle.
