You are correct but you can deploy either "BIG-IQ CMD only" or "BIG-IQ CMD and DCD".

vaibhav MD,

Big IQ- Centralized Management (CM) is the management platform itself, and your single pane of glass to manage BIG-IPs, and modules such as LTM.

Big IQ Data collection Device (DCD) is where you can send logs from your devices, which allows BIG-IQ CM to use them for analytics, alerting etc.

DCD is a free license too.

Hope this helps,

N

Hi Vaibhav,

As explained by Nathan, BIG-IQ CM is the system where administrator performs all tasks like managing BIG-IP, viewing logs, statistics etc and BIG-IP forwards logs/events to BIG-IQ DCD.

For BIG-IQ documentation: https://support.f5.com/csp/knowledge-center/software/BIG-IQ?module=BIG-IQ%20Centralized%20Management&version=6.1.0

Thanks a lot for support Dear Nathan, Fozail, Rob Carr.

I have one query .. with CM I can’t collect data and this is only to centrally manage all BigIP device. And with DCD we will get logs data to analytics, alerting etc, but we can not manage our device.
