Hello,I would like to know if the avscanner scanning utility (from the command line) loads the virus definitions with each scan or if they are resident in memory (as in the case of the former SAVDI).I ask this because the scanning speed is high compared to, for example, Clamav.Clamav 1.0.0 is unusable from this point of view and the alternative is the new Sophos Protection for Linux.
Does no one know this or is it secret information?
Hello Teoberi,Thank you for reaching the community forum.SPL command line scan loads the virus definitions into memory, and when it starts, they remain available in memory for 1 hour, so any successive scans that are run - either on demand OR scheduled will also use them. If they remain unused for more than an hour, then they’ll be released pending the next time they’re needed
That's good. Thanks.
