LKBEN10659: When you use a network monitor like netmon on a system, you find a lot of broadcasts on 8116 UDP


A check point cluster control protocal uses 8116 udp for its high availability


Wrong configuration


The Check Point Cluster Control Protocol is used for internal communication between Hgh Availability Cluster Members. This

link is used for report and query the cluster state, probing and load balancing.
You should reconfigure the system so other systems do not need to process the broadcast packets.
