semwebsrv service generating a huge traffic

Created: 20 Aug 2013 | 7 comments

I have big problem with this service (semwebsrv) which is Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Webserver.

If I enable this service so it will start generate a huge traffic in my network. I have to keep this service always disabled to save the traffic. But I will not be able to manage the client because Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Webserver will be disabledL.

I need to fix this issue if anyone knows.

What OS is the SEPM installed on?

Was the SEPM moved from an older server to this new server OR this is a new install?

Check the logs in the %programfiles%\Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager\Apache\logs folder and see what is causing the traffic.

Check if the issue is caused by a lot of downloads. If yes, check why the clients are downloading and validate if that is ok. If the issue is caused by remote clients, try using GUP.
