URL filtering I keep seeing lots of clients for this URL:
Anyone know what application can be causing this request from the client PC?
You should be able to check the application type from Monitor>logs>URL Filtering.
I just checked the link you provided and it provides the following info:
|Description||Sites that facilitate the purchase of goods and services. Includes online merchants, websites for department stores, retail stores, catalogs, as well as sites that aggregate and monitor prices.|
|Example Sites||www.amazon.com , www.pricegrabber.com , www.lightningdrops.com|
|Additional comments||Sites listed here should be online merchants that sell a variety of items (or whose main purpose is online sales). A webpage for a cosmetics company that also happens to allow online purchasing should be categorized with cosmetics and not shopping.|
That's a pretty generic URL used in a large amount of Google applications for uploading log files, crashes, and the like. I'm almost positive that this can be built into any Android application as well. So yes this would be a very large volume URL, blocking it wouldn't really effect anything and allowing it doesn't really allow much outside of analytics.
