We have an EPo 8 infrastructure with McAfee 8i on the client. Some of our clients are connected with our company-networl by wireless networks like UMTS/GPRS. For each UMTS/GPRS client we have a data-bundle of 250 Mb so keeping datacommunications to a minimum is a must! With network monitoring we see that every day ~ 14 Mb is transfered from the EPO server to the client.
I have some questions regarding this data traffic:
- is it possible to minimize data traffic, and how do i do this? - are definition files always transfered to the client, even if the latest definition file is on the client?
First off, I would check the CMA log file for transmitted data from ePO server to client. As far as I know the CMA checks whether a delta update of DAT files can be performed to avoid unnecessary network traffic.
