Can SLAB record a log on a remote machine?

I'm going to run a application which outputs a log using EventSource on two or more machines ("client").
Can one another machine ("server") listen the logs from all client machines, without installing SLAB-svc in each client machine?

The answer is no. The application generating messages must run on the same machine as the out of process "service" collecting messages.

Thank you, Randy.
I consider installing service in each client machine.

Is this a limitation of ETW? Or is it something that could be developed?

In short, yes it is a limitation of ETW. A good article on ETW is Improve Debugging And Performance Tuning With ETW.
