    Looking for some advice. Is real time scanning necessary on a file server or any server that has high cpu usage? I am looking to improve performance.

    Hello,

    I think that is a question which is very difficult to answer because that largely depends on the risk to your organization, which is hard for an outside party to quantify. The question I would probably ask myself is: "What is the absolute worst thing that could happen if I turned off real-time scanning?" and then factor that into the decision.

    Regards,
