DXL is the data exchange layer

McAfee Agent 5.6.0 bundles the McAfee Data Exchange Layer client 5.0 as a component. The Data Exchange Layer client is automatically installed on managed systems and connects to a DXL broker in your environment. DXL services run as part of McAfee Agent services. For information about using the DXL client, see the Data Exchange Layer client product documents.

Additionally, if you do not have any dxl brokers in your environment, the dxl client will be idle and do nothing.
