Your organization may have network zones which might be designated as restricted zones, for security controls, for example, your production network. These restricted zones are typically bounded by one or more firewalls that filter incoming and outgoing traffic.
A restricted zone may have only one way connectivity to another zone. For example if there are four network zones A, B, C and D, and each zone allows only one way connectivity to the other zone, then zones A and D are not directly connected. All network zones have only one way connectivity in the manner A > B > C > D.
In this case, the CCS Manager load balancer located in zone A cannot collect data through a CCS Manager data collector located in zone D.
Using a job hopping plan, you can now collect data from such network zones, by forwarding the data collection request through CCS Managers located in each of the network zones. You may define a job hopping plan that forwards data collection requests in a preset sequence across networks and sends back the collected data in the reverse sequence.
