SA Management Network supply Bandwidth throttling service. It lets system architectures determine how much bandwidth SA and any SA applications can consume as it traverses the network to a particular device.
May I get some more details on this Bandwidth throttling service in SA and how to configure it.
I am not familiar with such a service, where was that mentioned? Server Automation in itself does not require a lot of bandwidth, it is much dependant on what you are planning to use the server for.
For patching a server in such a slow line you may have to modify the wayscripts to increase all the timeouts, and you may run into issues if certain tools need to be transferred from the core to the server (such as patch database/utilities and so on).
I can only speak for SA to say it might be possible, however for big patch jobs such as transferring a whole service pack, you may run into issues with timeouts. I would suggest if you decide to go forward with SA, and you have the server available, to open a case with Support to assist you further, as modifying the wayscripts I mentioned above can be a difficult task.

If you find that this or any post resolves your issue, please be sure to mark it as an accepted solution.
I would like to add that SA is not the correct product for use as a (near) realtime monitoring solution.
As for log collection, you might want to consider having a cronjob (or Windows equivalent) collect a subset of the logs (eg, only logs modified in the past 24 hours) and make a gzipped copy before pulling down over the wire.
