To collect diagnostics and usage data for System Center Configuration Manager, each primary site runs SQL Server queries on a weekly basis. In a multi-site hierarchy, the data is replicated to the central administration site.
At the top-level site of a hierarchy, the service connection point site system role submits this information when it checks for updates. The mode of the service connection point detemines how the data is transferred:
In online mode: Diagnostics and usage data is automatically sent once a week from the service connection point to the cloud service.
In offline mode: Diagnostics and usage data is transferred manually by using the service connection tool. For more information, see Use the Service Connection Tool for System Center Configuration Manager.
