The Avahi daemon provides mDNS/DNS-SD discovery support (Bonjour/Zeroconf) allowing applications to discover services on the network.
You can disable the service by running this command:
cd /etc/init touch avahi-daemon.override echo "manual" > avahi-daemon.override
You can completely remove Avahi by running the following command:
sudo apt-get remove avahi-daemon avahi-utils
