Data files used with Content Gateway analysis
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security | v8.5.x
Analysis uses a set of data files to support its work. These files are updated regularly by Forcepoint Security Labs and made available on the Forcepoint download server. Content Gateway checks for updated analytic data files at regular intervals. The name and version of each file is displayed in the Content Gateway manager on the Monitor > MyProxy > Summary page.
Data file updates occur independent of Master Database updates (including real-time database updates and Real-Time Security Updates).
Every time the ./WCGAdmin start command is run, a data file check and download is performed. If the download fails, a new download is attempted every 15 minutes until a successful download results.
The default interval for database update checks is 15 minutes. This is the recommended setting. Longer intervals increase the window of vulnerability to emerging, zero day exploits.
You can change the polling interval by editing the PollInterval value in the /opt/bin/downloadservice.ini file on the Content Gateway machine. After editing the downloadservice.ini file, you must stop and restart Content Gateway from the command line:
/opt/WCG/WCGAdmin restart
