In Login AM, the logging and monitoring data is sent to the central share asynchronously. This means that every computer that is initialized with AM has a scheduled task that runs every 5 minutes to copy their local logfiles and monitoring data to the central share.
Note: All time and date values logged by Login AM in either metric or in the logfile are stored in UTC! Logging in Login AM is basically just a transcript of the PowerShell session. This way it's very easy to see what is happening at what time. The logfiles are stored locally and shipped to the central share (what the User Interface is looking at) every 5 minutes.
Note: The logfile that is opened by the User Interface might not be the latest logfile because of the logshipping mechanism.
Monitoring data in Login AM is processed by the computers locally, and then that monitoring data is shipped to the central share during the logshipping mechanism (default every 5 minutes). By default, only the Last Hearbeat monitoring data is generated by the monitoring framework. But it is very easy to add your own metrics to this framework. Each metric will show up under the computer details in the dashboard.
