Re: Huh?

I took it to mean that they apply a "filter" at source (maybe it never even emits certain data), and only save what they know they need. As opposed to saving all the data, and filtering it. To go back to the logging analogy, it would be to not log everything (which generates huge amount of noise), but only log changes / new / unusual events (obv depends on your needs here).
