Installing additional Storage Engine services after installation

At some later date, you might decide you need to install additional Storage Engine services to distribute your stored data. For information about adding more Storage Engines to an existing installation, see Deploying additional Storage Engines .

Installing additional collector roles

Once you have determined how much data the different data sources collect, you might want to install additional collector roles on different and assign certain data sources to use those collectors. It is recommended that if you install a Data Engine (Collector) on a server, you should install a Query Engine (Collector) role on the same server.

For information about adding collector roles to an existing installation see Deploying additional collectors .
