QUESTION:

Will stopping the Accounting Trace for class 7 & 8 affect the Data Collector?

ANSWER:

Stopping the Accounting Trace for class 7 & 8 does not affect the Insight Data Collector.  The Insight Data collector gets its real-time information from the OPx output and not from the SMF output destination.  If batch jobs are used to process SMF data, then those jobs could be affected by the removal  of the IFI data.
