About distribution logs

Data logged from distribution servers indicate how the distribution server received the content. When the distribution server stops receiving data from the origin server it sends a distribution log to the origin server.

This log does not indicate any rendering statistics, but instead indicates the quality and duration of the content that it received.

Distribution servers using Windows Media Services versions 4.1 and earlier cannot send distribution data back to the origin server. The distribution log notes this inability and records any server-side distribution statistics it has collected instead.
