OfficeScan can pause after scanning one file and before scanning the next file. This setting is used during Manual Scan, Scheduled Scan, and Scan Now.
Select from the following options:
High: No pausing between scans
Medium: Pause between file scans if CPU consumption is higher than 50%, and do not pause if 50% or lower
Low: Pause between file scans if CPU consumption is higher than 20%, and do not pause if 20% or lower
If you choose Medium or Low, when scanning is launched and CPU consumption is within the threshold (50% or 20%), OfficeScan will not pause between scans, resulting in faster scanning time. OfficeScan uses more CPU resource in the process but because CPU consumption is optimal, endpoint performance is not drastically affected. When CPU consumption begins to exceed the threshold, OfficeScan pauses to reduce CPU usage, and stops pausing when consumption is within the threshold again.
If you choose High, OfficeScan does not check the actual CPU consumption and scans files without pausing.
