Using this option, administrators can limit the volume of data collected from DeviceLock Service for each data collection session. DeviceLock Enterprise Server will only transfer from managed endpoints the volume of data specified in this parameter and then move this endpoint to the end of the queue to collect the remaining data later. This option is designed to prevent endpoints with large amounts of shadow data from delaying the timely collection of data from other endpoints.

- DeviceLock: Added new SMTP alert feature variable: "%COMP_IP%". This optional variable returns a comma-delimited list of all network addresses (IPs) associated with an endpoint.

- DeviceLock: Improved performance for Removable devices when Content-Aware Rules and Shadowing settings for Removable are set.
