Description Yaniv Lavi 2015-12-31 07:53:13 EST
Description of problem:
Log collector doesn't require any filters. In a scale environment this can mean hours of log collection and big output size. We should warn the user when doing this.

Moving from 4.0 alpha to 4.0 beta since 4.0 alpha has been already released and bug is not ON_QA.
