On-demand Scan tasks operation analysis
Oct 22, 2023
Tasks of the ODS and ContainerScan types can also cause significant resource consumption. Follow these recommendations for the tasks of ODS type:
- Make sure that several on-demand scan tasks are not running at the same time. The application allows for operation in this mode, but resource consumption can significantly increase. Check the schedule of all tasks of the ODS and ContainerScan types locally (as described for the File Threat Protection task) or using Kaspersky Security Center.
- Run the scan during the minimum server load.
- Make sure that there are no mounted remote resources (SMB/NFS) at the specified scan path. If a remote resource scan task cannot be performed directly on the server that provides the resource, do not perform the resource scan on servers with critical services, as execution of this task can take a long time (depending on the connection speed and the number of files).
- Optimize the settings of the on-demand scan task before start.
