Hi Experts,

I have deployed a few windows 8 machine at remote sites where we are using 3G internet. Since installing windows 8 our uploads have gone through the roof. Windows process like Taskhost and SVChost are the main cause but I cannot figure out why?

Is anyone else having these types of issues?

svchost processes with different flags  are responsible for most of things that work in windows, one of them is networking.

If there are new machines it is possible that they are contacting the Windows Update servers to get new updates...

If the 3g interface is not used for internal data traffic, then it should be possible to use monitoring software to see what those processes are doing. Use a network monitor and whenever it shows these processes as hyperactive, then monitor what local files they read/write using procmon.
