I'm thinking that I'm not the only AV admin out there whose number is on speed dial with web app developers/users.
Here's an exerpt from an actual email I received:
I’m getting reports from our user base that they are seeing issues with their Java based web application performing really slowly… i.e. page response of 4-5 seconds taking 3-5 times longer…
When I checked, it appears that McAfee on-access scanner is taking anywhere from 35-95% cpu for each web page call…
I've created a separate policy for Developers and added the exceptions based on a couple threads I've read here. Disabled scriptscan, .JAR files, .EAR files, *.class. But it doesn't seem to help at all. I had the group run ProcMon while accessing their webapp which I'm still trying to sort through. It's only a minute, but for about 8-10 seconds McShield makes a TON queries and ReadFile to the following, over and overa and over again.
From your previous posts I gather you are using Enterprise products and this is the Consumer/Home products area.
If this is about VirusScan Enterprise I think you possibly need to post a new thread here: https://community.mcafee.com/community/business/system/vse
