User ID Agent

I deployed a Windows 2008 member server and installed User ID Agent 5.06 to match the code of my PAN's.  I had everything working on, I was getting user ID's and everything I needed, but the issues was how much traffic the user agent generated over the Wide Area Network, for example when it queried my AD's servers for about 30 sites, in 60 Minutes time it had generated about 20GB of traffic.  Several sites were seeing large traffic spikes, so I had to disable the software.

Let me know if anyone knows how to fix this.

Re: User ID Agent

Hello Markk96,

User-ID agent and Domain Controller communicates each other very frequently,  it would try to communicate every 1 second to the AD server to read logs. These two are having most chatty behavior. AD and a User - ID agent will send queries, sync their information, read security logs every few seconds, hence it is recommended to have the AD-server and Agent inside the same LAN.

There will be not much traffic between PA-agent and PAN firewall. On a certain interval the PAN firewall will retrieve the most recent mapping from the UID agent.

Thanks
