File copy question application control

Jump to solution

I have a question regarding McAfee Application Control. The client has agent 4.5 and application control/solidcore 5.1.1, application control is managed by ePO.

When I have solidified/​​whitelist the computer it takes WAY to long time to copy files between two different network shares.

I have tried to exclude file types, but the it is still taking to long to copy data between two different network shares, these shares are not solidified.

If I disable Application Control it works lightning fast to transfer files between the two shares, it takes approximately 20 sec to copy 80 MB. When I activate application control it takes about 30 minutes for the same files to be copied.

When transferring files from the computers hard drive to a USB memory it is lightning fast whether I have application enabled or disabled.

In what policy is this setting located?

Which setting controls file copying between mapped share?

I have searched in the help section but cannot find the answer.

Thanks in advance

Jonas

I contacted business support and the answer was to run this command.

sadmin features disable discover-updaters

I tried it and it now works as expected.

What are the consequences of leaving the "discover updaters" feature disabled?

Discover-updater feature is used to retrieve a list of potential updaters that can be included in system. While transfering files over network this feature tracks each file operation to find possible updaters thus causing delay.
