Lots of multicast traffic from server

Last Modified: 2016-09-21
We have a windows server 2008 that runs a student information database.  Wire shark shows almost 100 packets a second going to a multicast address  Any idea what this might be?  I am not great with networking so pardon my ignorance of the issue.
