Scan Performance settings - System Utilization level and Windows task priority don't match?

I have read the documentation and this does seem to indicate that the 'system utilization setting maps to Windows Priority Control'. In the examples I have seen although we have the setting set to 'Low' System utilization the task is shows as being 'Normal' priority in windows? We are experiencing poor full scan performance using

Re: Scan Performance settings - System Utilization level and Windows task priority don't match?

Hi @J1mX1 ,

Thankyou for reaching us on Community!

In this case i would recommend you to use "limit maximum CPU usage " setting under the same performance section.
By default this option will be grayed-out. you need to enable 'scan anytime' option for the "limit maximum CPU usage" option to be used.

Once you enable "limit maximum CPU usage", you can type in the amount of CPU (between 25%-99%) that you would want McAfee ODS scan to consume when scanning files.

I hope you find this helpful.
