Introducing Quest Reporter : Glossary : C

Child object
An object that is the immediate subordinate of another object in a hierarchy. A child object can have only one immediate superior or parent object.
Compressed data transport mode
One of two types of data storage modes used by Quest Reporter. This mode collects and compresses the data on the Reporter Data Collector (RDC) host. The compressed data pack is then streamed to the Console host, decompressed and uploaded to the database. Compressed data transport is available only with remote scheduled collections. See also Direct data transport mode.
Connected domains
Domains managed by Reporter and instantiated within the Reporter user interface.
Container object
An object that can logically contain other objects. For example, a folder is a container object.
