Update check frequency - how check it by ePo


I have got ePo server 4.6.6 and Agents in versions (old systems) , and 4.8 (windows 8 and later) all together about 1300 computers in one LAN

recently i was instructed by my boss to explain why:

updates repository on linux based ftp server is being flooded with connections from all workstations with agent installed (it is over10 connections every sec each targeting mcafee update files)

I tried to find where can I configure options for frequency that Virus Scan is checkin for new updates in repository

I think i went throug all options in ePo but I can't find it.

Can anyone provide me some info how can I do that ?

I can find similar options  in Virus Scan Console in Autoupdate Task Properties , but it is 1300 computers.

any help would be nice

Update Tasks are configured as Client Task rather than Product Policies.

Client Tasks can be viewed from the System Tree Node using the CLient Task Tab. Take a look there and see if you have any tasks configured.

It might also be worth checking if you have Global Updating Enabled in Configuration>Server Settings.
