The following Anti-Virus recommendations are so that any AV (Anti-Virus) software does not interfere with the performance or reliability of the Observer system, and its logging/capturing processes.
Please ensure that any “On Access” scanning processes or schedules are turned off.
On access processes locks files that are being accessed and are scanned for potential viruses. Our Observer system generates huge data files that contain Audio/Video. The On Access scans prohibit the encoding processes from accessing the files in a timely manner, causing potential instability in the capturing of the data.
Set Schedules for AV updates and system scans to low traffic times.
Some updates from AV may require server restarts, so it is recommended that this be during a time that someone can monitor the system to ensure proper restart of the system.
AV updates demands system resources, and takes them away from the Observer software. By design AV processes take presidency over processes.
Please exclude the following folders from any scans:
C:\Program Files\MariaDB 10.0
C:\Program Files\MariaDB 10.2
