    Does anyone have the Cisco AMP (Advanced Malware Protection) in their environment?  Do you have it running nicely?

    I was recently informed we are looking to migrate to Cisco AMP. 

    omo3754, Did you end up setting it up in your shop?  Anything special?

    Anyone else using AMP? any suggestions?

    We recently went to Cisco AMP on our CommVault servers. Just as with any other AV solution, you will need to create a policy to exculde the CommVault program directory, DDB, Index Cache and create SHAs for your commvault proccesses. We did have an odd thing happen with AMP. It appeared to fully fill the OS drive on 2 of our media agents. No one could explain this and it only happened once.  Just be aware.

    I'm not sure if I'd describe it as "running nicely", but AMP does not seem to affect backups.  And backup performance improved over the previous tool being used (Symantec), but that was before I started here as the CV admin.

    Restores have been more of a problem, as the AMP config isn't working too well, or on some servers it hasn't been completed.  So the result is very high CPU usage, as AMP will scan the files streaming in from the media agent.  Our temporary workaround has been to disable AMP on machines where large restores are taking place, but that's only been needed a couple of times.

    Someday, time permitting, we should dive a bit deeper to stress test the AMP config.

    From our environment Cisco AMP runs ok, there is no problem the only then you need to consider is to apply a exclusion according to
