File exclusions and McAfee Profiler


I have excluded some file types from OAS as low risk processes, for example all .etl files. However, every time I run the McAfee Profiler, the same file is being reported with a fairly high read/write count. Is the Profiler supposed to take into account files exclusions? Or, is there a way to verify that the OAS is actually excluding the file? Not just from the policy applied to the system, but a way to verify that OAS is not scanning the file.

Re: File exclusions and McAfee Profiler

Hi @Linuxxo ,

Low Risk process can be added to exclude scanning of any files that are accessed by the process.

Please read more about Low Risk process exclusions in the links below.
