An Upstream Collector is any collector receiving data from a downstream Data Director Service. No client endpoints will be crashing into this system in typical configurations.
The Upstream Collector (Forward to Cab Import) will be forwarding data onward to a folder being monitored by the Cab Import Service using SMB. Prior to forwarding to this UNC share, the Data Director Service also transforms the files so they are readable by the Cab Import Service.
