VirusScan Command Line 6.0 increased startup time and scanning time

Product: VirusScan Command Line 6.0

Problem: Long startup time or long scanning time


Using VirusScan Command Line 5.0 to scan one sample folder requires about 2.5 seconds (include both startup time and scan time).

However, using VirusScan Command Line 6.0 with the latest DAT to scan the same sample folder requires about 7.9 seconds (include startup time, scan time, and decompressed DAT file).


1. Is there any solution to shorten the long startup time or long scanning time? The DAT has already been decompressed.

2. Any advice to improve the performance on startup time / scanning time if there are concurrent scanning threads?
