    How much does the anti-virus effect a servers performance?

    Michael Taylor

      Hi,

       

      We've recently migrated onto a new server, which is hosted by our companies 3rd party suppliers.  As part of the Qlikview server installation we were unable overwrite the servers anti-virus settings to exclude the Qlikview folders and files from the anti-virus checking.

       

      In order to for us to follow Qlikview's best practice and exclude these files and folders we need our 3rd party IT and our internal IT security teams to agree we can do this, which is proving difficult to organise.

       

      so I was just wondering, does the anti-virus checks really make much of a difference to performance? Can anyone provide more detail of why the files and folders need excluding so I can provide these areas with more information?

       

      Thanks in advance,

       

      Mike.
