Time taken by forefront to scan email


  • Hello,

    Is there any way to find out how much time forefront took to scan an email with attachments.

    What is the impact on server if we increased the value Transport max conatiner scan time (msecs.).

    EXchange 2007 with SP3 & forefront server security installed.

    Thank you for the post.

    As far as I know, the default value of“Max Container Scan Time (msec) - Realtime/Transport” is two minutes. You can ncrease Max Container Scan Time - Realtime/Transport by 50%. There is not any special impact on server.

  • Hi Nick,

    I know default value of Max container scan time. What i would be interested in knowing to determine total time taken by forefront to scan a particular message.

    I tried checking program log file but it doesn't clearly indicate when it started scanning a file & finished it.

    & if we increase scan time value, i guess there would be increase load on server?
