Are there any other config options in forefront other than Group Policy? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been using forefront for a few months now and am wondering if there is any other way to fine tune the scanning other than group policy?

    Specifically i want to throttle the cpu needs of the scan engine. Right now it will take as much as it wants killing most users systems. We still use Mcafee for somethings and with that i can limit the process to 30% cpu usage which allows me to run a full scan during the day without causing users headaches.

    Is there a automated way to lower the cpu priority of the scanner?

  • Unfortunately no way currently to limit cpu usage for the process :( .
