Glossary Term:
Machine Generated Data

Digital data that is created without human intervention by computer processes or sensors. In IT, syslogs are an example of MGD; in OT/IoT, sensor output is an example of a source of MGD. An analog-to-digital converter may be part of the process of making sensor output into useful MGD.
