what's metadata.svc?

Hi there, I'm running a file report on Cisco Firepower services and I' noticing a lot of metadata.svc  between hosts. Is this something I should explore further?

thanks.

I've seen where it's a printer trying to find device data on the internet but failing so it keeps trying.  Are the hosts windows.  Say you have a printer and someone clicks the toolbar at top that says get more device info from the internet, and the icons change, thats metadat.svc
