About the Classification Server
The Classification Server provides a platform for deploying Veritas Information Classifier service, which lets you author policies and manage classification. The Veritas Information Classifier administration console can be invoked from the Data Insight Management Console.
The Classification Server runs the
DataInsightVICServer services. This server does not require a separate license. It is functional with the Data Insight base license.
The Classification Server receives file paths for classification in the form of requests from the Indexer nodes. The Classification Server fetches content from the associated data sources. It evaluates content by using any of the enabled policies in the administration console of Veritas Information Classifier. It reads the files to search for content that matches policies, and assigns tags to files to generate classification results. The tags are sent to the Indexer and displayed on the Data Insight console and are available for querying using the Data Insight Query Language.
You can also have multiple Classification Servers. Typically, a Classification Server is mapped to a Collector. Note that instead of installing a standalone Classification Server, you can also assign the classification role to a Data Insight server, however this is not a recommended configuration. It is also recommended that a Classification Server should be geographically closer to the data sources that it needs to classify.
For more information about using and configuring the classification feature, see the Veritas Data Insight Classification Guide.
