What is the polling interval for the data feed to the traffic page in Enforce?
And how can it be adjusted?


Release : 15.5

Component : Enforce


The default interval which data is polled is 24 hours (or 86400000 seconds). And this is customizable.

To adjust the interval, if needed, edit the file located at:

Linux: /opt/Symantec/DataLossPrevention/EnforceServer/<version>/Protect/config
Windows: C:\Program Files\Symantec\DataLossPrevention\EnforceServer\<version>\Protect\config

First create a backup of the file. Then, search for the following lines:

# StatisticsRollup aggregates traffic statistics older than 7 days into a
# daily snapshot.  The default Period is every 24 hours.  The default delay
# is unspecified in this configuration file and calculated when the manager
# starts such that the Rollup task runs at midnite.
com.vontu.manager.system.statistics.StatisticsRollup.period = 86400000

And adjust the setting com.vontu.manager.system.statistics.StatisticsRollup.period, examples:

For 12 hours: 43200000
For 6 hours: 21600000

Save the file and recycle the Symantec DLP Manager Service.
