This issue has been solved. See solution.

What size of data will the logs increase by if the setting under Clients>> Policies tab>> Communication settings >>Upload >>

"Learn applications that run on the client computers" ? Is this useful and what kind of report will it show?

Has anyone used this before - would enabling this setting be beneficial?

yes it will increase. if there are so many applications and machines the DB may grow huge

"Learn applications that run on the client computers" ? Is this useful and what kind of report will it show?

do you want to add whitelist /blacklist , exception or system lockdown ? if yes enable this feature.

Hi,

You should learn both the concepts i.e.. Application learning & System lockdown

Application Learning

The Windows Symantec Endpoint Protection client monitors and collects information about the applications and the services that run on each computer. You can configure the client to collect the information in a list and send the list to the management server. The list of applications and their characteristics is called learned applications.

You can use this information to find out what applications your users run. You can also use the information when you need information about applications in the following areas:

Monitoring applications and services that run on client computers

System Lockdown:
