Hello AskPerf readers! My name is Leena Nair, and I am a Support Engineer on the Performance team. Over the last couple of months, I’ve had some very interesting discussions with customers regarding anti-virus software selection, and I thought it might be interesting to share some pieces of those discussions with you. Almost anyone that owns, or works on a computer is aware of the dangers posed by malware and the need to install (and maintain) a reliable anti-virus program. However, as we’ve noted in several posts in the past, the anti-virus software itself has been known to cause issues that impact system performance and reliability. So, let’s start by taking a look at some things to consider when choosing an Anti-Virus package.
Even though many of these things seem to be fairly obvious, we often work with customers who are running into issues caused by AV software not performing as expected – causing pool memory depletion, hangs etc. And that will bring us to the end of this post. Take care!
