Re: Data Harvesting

Yes.

 

I have been noticing a serious degradation in response on a newly rebulit Win10 laptop. Tried monitoring everything from that end then looked at the source, xfi router. The logs showed on glaring thing:

 

Harvester StartRadioTrafficHarvesting

 

Now multiple people have commented on this.

 

Does anyone know why this is taking up bandwidth? A worm in the xfi routers? 

 

I'm about to put the router into ipV6 and put everything through a device I can get full logs from.

First guess would be that it is what supplies and updates the data you see when you click any of the device names here: https://internet.xfinity.com/devices

That can only come from your router.

Re: Data Harvesting

"Harvester StartRadioTrafficHarvesting" is a normal background function of the device. It is not malware.
