Here in The Netherlands streaming updates started last night, and continued this morning.
And so far I didn't notice any connection problems with the update server.

That we not all experience the "problem" at the same moment, could be explained by Avast! doing ( software ) maintenance on the update servers.
But that is just a theory, I don't know that.

My files reveal the following... (None before or after these 2.)
1503100, dated 19th 3rd @ 9.31 PM, (AEDT) is 100 Meg.
1503200, dated 21st 3rd @ 1.06 AM, is also 100 Meg.

Why so large?
&... can I remove the old/er one/s if not needed to increase my disc space?
or...Do they auto-destruct?

(Hi GJ.)

The avast C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\defs folder contains the complete virus definitions (VPS) when there is a new VPS update, that is an incremental update - that and the current VPS folder are combined into a new VPS folder.

So the new VPS folder isn't downloaded in its entirety - you don't need to remove the old one - the avast housekeeping will periodically remove the old VPS folder, leaving only the current one.

See image attached of my defs sub-folder, housekeeping has already cleaned up.

Streaming updates spigot is closed again.  No streaming updates at all on my other machine, and the one that had received 76 today hasn't had any since 10:18 AM EDT USA.

For me, r-065-041-234-077.ff.avast.com seems to be the problem.
