Additional FYI: How to use command line switches with McAfee Agent (KB52707)

for RedHat based systems, you can do "service cma status" also.

 

Installation: sh install.sh -i

Log file location: /var/McAfee/agent/logs/ 

 

Agent Status/etc/init.d/ma status OR service cma status shows McAfee agent status. 

/etc/init.d/ma <start|stop|restart|status|basedir|configdir|reload SOFTWAREID|unload SOFTWAREID> 

 

Wakeup and other commands: 

/opt/McAfee/cma/bin/cmdagent <-p | -e | -c | -f | -i | -h | -l >

The macompatsvc is single process what you are seeing are all macompatsvc threads. The number of threads can vary. In Linux, threads are listed as process that's why it list many processes, but if you look into that the parent of all process are same. These are threads and perfectly normal.
