Hi all,

 

How will I know which client is going to consume heavy updates from Antivirus server.

Do Antivirus server Management console has such features which will list real time virus definition update’s communication between client and Server.

 

 

My version for SEPM is MR4

as i know, you can only see from the logs to view clients activitis, and which aren't the real time view.

Hi Anil,

SEPM is management console but information which you are looking for will be available through network monitoring tools like Whats up gold, Solar wind Orion etc.

SEPM console won't be able to provide information about bandwidth utilization.

As you stated it's MR4 I would suggest it's a time to upgrade to latest version.

Check till date SEP releases

Hello,

To answer your Question above, it is important to understand HOW are virus definitions distributed from the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager? Check this Article: http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO53175

Check these Articles below which would assist you on HOW to prevent the clients to download the Full definitions set from SEPM and limit Bandwidth usability - 

Preventing Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) Clients from receiving FULL Antivirus/Antispyware definition packages from a patched Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM)

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH98453

With default LiveUpdate content revision settings configured within the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager, clients are downloading full definition updates instead of delta updates

Hope that helps!!
