Virus Scan Enterprise slows down server responsiveness

Virus Scan Enterprise slows down server responsiveness

We have VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i on our desktops and servers (deployed via ePolicy Orchestrator).

But the servers seem to very slow when sending traffic between each other.

Is there a way of removing virus scanning of traffic between servers?

Thanks,
Richard Artes.

Disable scanning network drives. This should allievate your performance issues.

RE: Virus Scan Enterprise slows down server responsiveness

In addition, since you didn't tell us the configuration of your VirusScan installation and just to make sure the resource/memory use is at a minimum, make sure you have the most recent Patch 6 installed, plus the 5300 scan engine, plus the recent Hotfix 427887.

Hope this helps.

Thanks!

Thanks Grif.
We are not scanning network traffic, only read/write disk traffic.
But I will make sure we have the latest patches and hotfix.
