Query about "fingerprint" created in MOVE "Multiplatform" scenario

Jump to solution

Hello

The "MOVE Customer presentation" (https://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-4097) describes  the file checking process in both an Agentless and Multiplatform sceanrio.

The Agentless scenario says (quote) : "MOVE AV creates an MD5 of the file contents"

The Multiplatform scenario says (quote) : "Fingerprint of File is created"

Questions :

- Is the "Fingerprint" in the Multiplatform scenario also an MD5 of the file contents or something else?

- How is the "fingerprint" actually created in a Multiplatform scenario

Thanks

- AL

The MOVE cache size is set by policy from the ePO Server, it is limited.

For MOVE AntiVirus 2.6 'Offload Scan Server' the default 'Maximum Cache Items' is : 1,000,000 (one million items)

Yes- The offload scanning server saves checksums of the files that it scans.

The fingerprint gets created when a MOVE AV Agent requests a file. The file is sent over to the oflload scanning server to be scanned. Once the offload scanning servier scans the file the file's checksum value is stored. The screen shot below is from Offoad scanning server's cache list.

Is that cache size limited or does it just keep growing and growing?
