    we've had similar issues with VSEL.


    it was an issue with the notifications, which sadly, can't be configured via ePO...


    you need to configure it via the web interface to VSEL..for which you need the creds for the NAILS account...oh wait, the password is created automatically at install when deployed by ePO/agent, and each machine has a different password...


    If it's on one machine, get to the webconsole and try disabling the notifications (mcafee agent will handle getting detections to ePO).


    I like the idea of VSEL, but compared to VSE 8.8, VSEL, or at least the extention, is horribly under developpped.

    Hi ! We have some troubles with VSE1.7.1. and TOMCAT:

    %CPU increase a max when TOMCAT is started and can't be loaded because scan on-demand is enable and consum a large %CPU

    So can we hope to limted %CPU to limit scan on demand when it's started ?

    Our list of exclusions seems not suffisant  to decrease %CPU

    Can you help me please ? Do you have the same problem? how resolve it ?

    Thank's for your help .
