ISEE queries

Hi,

Our security had sniffed that ISEE is generating traffic to HP web site every 10 mins from HP server.

- Where can I find the documentation from HP why it is generating the traffic every 10 mins?
- Is it tunable?
- Why can't it generating the traffic to HP only when necessary?


Thanks in advance.

Re: ISEE queries

You are correct ISEE Clients and the SPOP both perform a health check every 600 seconds to assure they can still connect to the HP Support Center's ISEE content server.

As I remember the value is tunable, but such tuning is NOT supported.

The health checks help to assure that the ISEE Client will be able to contact HP when a real hardware incident occurs.

Take care,

Re: ISEE queries

Hi,

Is there a document from HP that said the health check is every 600sec?

I need to proved to our security as well as management that it is the design of ISEE and not some kind of security compromisation from the server.

Re: ISEE queries

Thanks.

I'm surprise to see AIX and Solaris in the file.
