LiveUpdate Packet Size reaching 1GB

Created: 02 May 2012 | 10 comments

Hi,

 

it has been a problem for several months now in our firm, that the Live Update package sizes are reaching 1GB daily (exclusively through Virus Definitions). Our setup is that every hour the LUA server is searching for new updates on the Symantec server and then distributes it to the connected clients. This works well for about 4 hours, then LUA server won't request updates for several hours until almost exclusively at night it starts to request an update, which then is about 1GB in size. 

This would not be a problem with the proper network bandwidth, but in my company we somtimes only have 2MB connections to our remote stations. And pushing out 1GB to several clients over a 2MB connections is not very amusing. 

So after reading a couple of discussions in the forum, i am really confused since in every discussion i read, it is mentioned that the daily update package size, will never be greater then 50MB. And i am not really sure how Virus Defintions can reach a size of 1GB. So please can i get some advice on how to make the packages smaller or make the LUA server really connect hourly to the Symantec server to request updates. 

 

Regards

Kai - Stephan Jakobsen

We are running LUA 2.3.0.71 And our problem is not Disk Space or that the Update are failing. 

Our problem is that the Virus Definitions our LUA is downloading for our 32bit and 64bit Systems is 1GB in size. And every day LUA downloads 1GB Virus definitions and is pushing them out to our clients. And our Network bandwidth is just not fast enough to handle such huge packets.

for example ( this is one of those 1GB  downloads):

as far as i understand these are only Virus Definitions for Endpoint Protection Clients and Mangers for each 32- and 64-bit systems. So how is this possible ? Do i have to do this Test? I am pretty new at this software, kind of thrown into the cold water in this case ;) and Downloads like these happen on a daily bases.

Hi Kai - Stephan,

All the files that you are donwloading are for Symantec Endpoint Protection v12.1.  Is there a specific reason why LUA is in use in this environment?  In most cases, the SEPM can do a fantastic job of downloading and distributing contents in an all-SEP organization.  The following article has info on some of the cases where LUA is necessary:

When is it Recommended to Use LiveUpdate Administrator 2.x with Symantec Endpoint Protection?Article: TECH154896   |  Created: 2011-03-07   |  Updated: 2012-03-28   |  Article URL http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH154896

Also: if you do need LUA, you can likely cut your download size in half by configurign it to just download the SEPM materials.  At the present time, you are downloading both SEPM and SEP client definitions.  If possible, download just the SEPM defs and then the up-to-date SEPMs can process and distribute the definitions to their SEP clients.

Final note: The newer LUA 2.3.1 is on the DVD of the newly released SEP 12.1 RU1 MP1.   You can also get a copy by getting in touch with Tech Support.

Hope this helps!

 

With thanks and best regards,

Mick

I just talked to one of the guys who was managing our systems before i overtook this responsibility. He mentioned that the LUA was needed to test the Updates on running systems to ensure that the updates are not interferring with our other programs. So these "Test Systems" are constently getting new updates from the LUA, while the other systems are only updated once a week, to make sure, that if an update is not compatible with our programs, we have time to make sure that this update is not going out to our production systems and disturbs the stability of our network.  So it would be preferrable if the LUA stays in place.

So is it possible that the policy for the "Test Systems" continues to get the updates directly from the LUA, while the "Production Clients" are getting their update once a week from the SEPM ? So that we could still check if the update is compatible with our programs, but routing the update for the "Production Clients" through GUP and SEPM?

Another question for me is, if the Clients actually are downloading the whole 1GB packet our if they are just checking the for their updated virus definitions? And of course if  ONE Virus Definition of about 100MB actually only contains Virus Definitions.

...if these definitions are actually being tested or not.

Going by the Download Schedule log you posted before, it is marking the content as "Skip Test".  This means that the content can be distributed to either 'Testing' or 'Production' Distribution Centres without restriction.

Depending on how your distribution schedules are configured, this content may not be getting tested at all and is going straight out to your production SEP environment!

After the separation of testing and production content is complete though, it's just a matter of SEP LU policies and SEPM configuration to point your test SEP clients at the 'Testing' distribution centre, while all other clients obtain definitions via the SEPM which is pointing at the 'Production' distribution centre.

Of course, if it turns out you're not testing content anyway, you may consider checking with company policy to see if it is still a requirement?

>  LUA was needed to test the Updates on running systems to ensure that the updates are not interferring with our other programs. So these "Test Systems" are constently getting new updates from the LUA, while the other systems are only updated once a week

Testing is one of the valid reasons for LUA: the SEPM alone doe snot have the capability to allow definitions to be tested before being rolled out.

As SMLatCST said, make sure that the definitions are being tested and used as intended!  &: ) 

> So is it possible that the policy for the "Test Systems" continues to get the updates directly from the LUA, while the "Production Clients" are getting their update once a week from the SEPM ?

Yes, "thumbs up" to the advice above- this can be managed from the SEPM by creating client groups and assigning LiveUpdate policies to those groups.

I do recommend that SEPMs and SEP endpoints in your production network receive new updates more often than once per week, though!  The very latest defenses are always best to have.  There's a lot of very bad malware in circulation.  For some details on the Threat Landscape, check out Security Response's new "Internet Security Threat Report, Volume 17"
(https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/new-symantec-report-2001s-threat-trends)

It still is possible to change your LUA configuration to reduce bandwidth consumption---- you're currently downloading 32-bit and 64-bit SEP client and SEPM defs.  If all your test systems are 32-bit clients, for instance, then uncheck the options to download defs for 64-bit clients.  If all your SEPMs are 64-bit, then uncheck the options to download 32-bit SEPM defs.  And, if you do decide to continue updating your production network SEPMs only once per week, then make sure you are only downloading those SESM defs once per week instead of daily.

Here are a couple articles that may be of interest:

I found a curios inconsistency in the Update characteristics of our LUA. It seems like at the start of each day it behaves like it was told by our policy to update every hour. These updates all are about 5MB in size. Then after a few hours it stops to update and will not update until sometime after midnight. This is when the huge GB download occurs.  

Mick2009's picture

>  it stops to update

What appears in the Activity Monitor during that time?  Is a task underway?

Also check the LUA Event Logs.  Does it show that a download job ran, but no new updates were found?

When time allows, please do update this thread with news of how your re-configuration is going (selecting only the versions of definitions that are needed). 

With thanks and best regards,

Mick
