Very High Resources Consuming for ClamAV

Recommended Posts

When a program started with lots of files loaded (VS 2015), the Immunet Protect consumes lots of resources of both CPU and memory.

However, if I turn off the ClamAV, it is solved.

So does ClamAV have a low performance? Or it's just a bug.

I would venture to guess that the ClamAV module is scanning files at the same time as they're being created by Visual Studio.

Try creating a custom Immunet Exclusion rule for Visual Studio's entire Program Files folder in Settings. Then turn ClamAV back on, restart your computer and see if the same behavior persists.

You can also directly contact the ClamAV developers to inform them of this issue if you wish. https://www.clamav.net/contact
