Group Update Providers (GUPs) can be a critical component of a customer's Symantec Endpoint Protection infrastructure. Providing visibility into these processes is something that would benefit most large customers that have implemented GUPs in their environment.
A new tool has been released by Product Management, SEP Content Distribution Monitor that helps monitor GUP health and status as well as general content deployment. This is a lightweight, stand-alone tool designed to be run directly on the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) server, and should return a graphical display of the content distribution status.
This monitor works with GUPs that are running 11.0.5 (SEP 11 RU5) or above. There is also a beta release of a tool which works with SEP 12.1 SEPMs and GUPs.
An introduction and tutorial webcast on the use of this tool can be viewed at the following location:
