How inventory update works?

Jump to solution

Hi,

In MACC product guide it mentions:

//A change to an endpoint's inventory triggers inventory information to be pushed to the McAfee ePO
server after the agent-server communication interval. 

What is it means? is it means if i create a new file or modify an existing file, at next agent-epo communication interval (60mins), MACC will automatically fetches the file info and sent to epo?

I did some tests but seems not working like this at all.

Btw in epo-> system tree-> client property-> product-> solidcore-> inventory status-> Inventory Fetch Time, I'm wondering how is this value updated, is the client have to reach the default 7 days interval? as per my testing if you manually fetch inventory for this client, the "Inventory Fetch Time" will not be updated.

 

thx.

Inventory is updated to epo every 3 hrs by default.

So if it changes a file right after the change. We will send the changes in inventory within the next 3 hrs.

 

https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/application-control-8.0.0-product-guide-epolicy-orchestrator/page/GUI...

 

Inventory fetch optimization

With this release, we have enhanced the inventory fetch workflows. For Application Control, the minimum interval between consecutive inventory fetch runs is set to seven days by default. This implies that for an endpoint you can pull inventory once a week.

Starting with the 8.0.0 release, if less than seven days have passed since last fetch inventory, inventory updates are fetched. If more than seven days have passed since last fetch inventory, complete inventory details are fetched.

Note:  For releases 7.0.1 and earlier, if inventory for the endpoint was fetched in the last seven days, the client task fails.
