Not so sure of what I'm asking smiley but... let me say.
A single delta definition update is, in size, 300 KB (just an example).

How many I/O this update generates in a client? Is it possible to answer this question?

You would need to use a tool such a Process Explorer or Process Monitor to see something like this. You would need to setup a controlled test environment and setup a update schedule so you know when to look for this.

What process should I check in order to register the related I/O operations?

Any time I see an update, I see the ccSvcHst.exe process taking up CPU

The point is that I've to obtain the I/O value "cleaned" of what not directly involved with the update process... this could be a little difficult.

There is nothing in SEP/M that would show you this. This would require a third party tool.

I imagined that but... is there a way to "isolate" the process component related to the update process itself?

I mean, I have no idea to discriminate the I/O operations.

I know that documents as I know my name smiley
