Dedicated Log Collector interfaces

I am having trouble finding good documentation on this. Hoping maybe the community has experience with it.


I need a few questions answered. We have 2 M600 dedicated log collectors. We plan on utilizing the 10 GB interfaces for Device Log Collection. That part is clear as spring water. The part that is very muddy


Log Collector External Log Forwarding - What Interface does this use??

Collector Group Communication interface - is this only for management for the manager, does this include Log queries from Panorama Manager, does this only include the intragroup communication (Say we had log redundancy, this is what would travel over that interface)

When you configure the log collectors in Panorama, I do believe there are commands to dictate what interface(s) you can use.


Out of the box, ALL traffic is using eth1/1, which is the mgmt interface, so if you want to modify that, then you can do this via cli or via Panorama. 


I do not have a M600 to use, but I seem to recall there are gui options to change the interfaces.
