DirectAudit version 3.2.3 or lower on all platforms
In release 3.2.3 and prior, Direct Audit agents randomly choose any available collector to connect. This may result in agents connecting to collectors in remote sites instead of nearby collectors, resulting in more WAN traffic and network latency.
As of DirectAudit version 3.3.0 (Suite 2016) there is a new enhancement to address this issue:
There is an new option box "Agents must prefer collectors in the same site as the agent" added in Audit Manager Console at Audit Store's Advanced Properties page. If this option is checked, all agents in this audit store will prefer to use collectors in their own Active Directory site over collectors in other sites.
