AV scan and Latency



we have AVscan setup , but not used it, 


1)   user experience slowness accessing the files during scanning process.

2) if there are encrypted files or password files how the scan works?

Re: AV scan and Latency

thanks that was informative.

but its does not say scanning process for  encrypted files/password protected files .


Re: AV scan and Latency

non-scanable files are up to the antivirus app to decide on, I'd assume that the ones who can block this has it configurable in their GUI. I can't remember seeing it on POC's I did with Kaspersky and Symantec.

thanks everyone.


Have few NFS mounts and that needs to use AV scan. i know its only for CIFS traffic. 

Any alternative to scan NFS mounts?
