When will the MOVE MP client transfer files to the SVM server for scanning

Jump to solution

when will the network transmission happen?

Files will be transferred after not hitting the local cache ?

Or just transfer MD5 hash to SVM server,and transfer the complete file after not hitting the global cache.

 

thanks~

my apologies for not been clear

The information we got from our developers is that files larger than 40 MB (by default) wont be send and instead only small chucks of their data indeed as you mention for a more efficient scanning

Thank you. But I still don’t understand whether the file transfer actually happened in step 5 or step 6.

Step5 :If the publisher trust does not match, the scanner checks for the file in global cache in the SVM. If the file is present, the access is allowed.

 In step 5, whether the client transfers the Hash to the SVM or transfers the file to the SVM. This means  the global cache can reduce network traffic or not.

It can indeed happen at that point but it depends on the file size configuration of the policy, by default the size is files smaller than 40 MBs, but you can configure deferred scans for large files :

if you dont use deferred scans then the client sent chunks of data/ offsets of data to the scanner

 Thank you for your reply!

But I still can’t understand how large file transfer works by sent chunks of data/ offsets .

I checked some documents. Does this mean a more efficient transfer method? In fact, large files still need to be transferred to the server.

Thanks~
