Repository to Endpoint Communication volume much higher than normal with DAT 8679
Our Network team said our network circuits were maxed out at several sites. We traced it back at each site to a McAfee distributed repository and a bunch of endpoints. We have not changed our McAfee configuration for at least 6 months without an issue. These specific repositories have been active for years. They said they have seen higher than normal volume starting 3 days early, but it only began causing serious issues with the 10/10/2017 DAT (DAT 8679).
Has anyone else seen an abnormal spike in network utilization related to distributed repository to endpoint communication from 10/06/2017 thru 10/10/2017 (DATs 8675 - 8679)?
