Difference of fpolicy and fpolicy_server

Dong_Chen

Hi,

 

I have a question about the fpolicy counters in cDOT. int the TR-4429_FPolicy for cDOT-Varonis, there are two objects: fpolicy and fpolicy_server. They both have some counters such as max_request_latency, outstanding_requests, etc. What is the difference between  fpolicy and fpolicy_server?

 

statistics show -object fpolicy –instance <instance_name> -sample-id <id>
statistics show -object fpolicy_server –instance <instance_name> -sample-id <id>

 

 

Table 6) List of FPolicy counters.
max_request_latency Maximum screen requests latency
outstanding_requests Total number of screen requests in process
request_latency_hist Histogram of latency for screen requests
requests_dispatched_rate Number of screen requests dispatched per second
requests_received_rate Number of screen requests received per second

 

Table 7) List of fpolicy_server counters.
max_request_latency Maximum latency for a screen request
outstanding_requests Total number of screen requests waiting for response
request_latency Average latency for screen request
request_latency_hist Histogram of latency for screen requests
request_sent_rate Number of screen requests sent to FPolicy server per second
response_received_rate Number of screen responses received from FPolicy server per second

FPolicy seems to be the processes that are running on the actual cluster itself and fpolicy_server refers to the offbox processing.  I hope this helps.

Yes, I believe that's cDOT native FPolicy server and external FPolicy server.
