Synchronizing a client with the Administration Server

This scenario describes the state of the administration system when intensive data synchronization occurs between a client device and the Administration Server. Client devices connect to the Administration Server with the interval defined by the administrator. The Administration Server compares the status of data on a client device with that on the Server, records information in the database about the last client device connection, and synchronizes data.

This section contains information about traffic values for basic administration scenarios when connecting a client to the Administration Server (see table below). The data in the table may vary slightly depending upon the current version of the anti-virus database.

Overall traffic volume varies considerably depending on whether IP multicasting is used within administration groups. If IP multicasting is used, the total traffic volume decreases approximately by N times for the group, where N stands for the total number of devices included in the administration group.

The volume of traffic at initial synchronization before and after an update of the databases is specified for the following cases:

The table specifies traffic rates in case of changes to one of the protection settings that are included in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security policy settings. Data for other policy settings may differ from data displayed in the table.
