Enabling Anti-ransomware Learning - Question

Hello everyone.  We recently switched to file-based licensing in prep for upgrade.  As we loaded our license files, I noticed I now have the option to turn on Anti-ransomware Learning in Unified Manager.

Are there any considerations?   Using the example of volumes efficiencies.  There are considerations before just enabling all efficiencies on all volumes depending on various factors.  Is there something similar for Anti-ransomware?  Just curious on hearing any advice or experience?

 

Thanks in advance!

The advice is that there is a small performance hit from it - so if the system is already heavily loaded, perhaps be cautious turning it on. Only turn it on for volumes mounted directly by clients - so no VMWare data stores. I assume you've also read https://www.netapp.com/pdf.html?item=/media/7334-tr4572pdf.pdf ?
