Federation is a Foglight feature that addresses the needs of customers who monitor large-scale environments that are naturally partitioned into logical units. Each partition is traditionally served by one Foglight Management Server instance and its distributed clients/agents.
The Federation Field Guide is organized as follows:
. Provides an overview of the federation feature and lists its capabilities, known issues, and requirements.
. Outlines how to set up and use the Federation Master and Federated Children, and provides a list of known troubleshooting issues.
