File server and antivirus real time threat protectionLocked
I’m curious of this scenario.
Let’s say there is a windows 2k3/8 running as file server with commercial antivirus sharing folder A. If a client is uploading, say 100,000 files of 10kb each, to folder A, how will the antivirus real time threat protection do its job and how does it affect the uploading?
I believe the speed of transferring should be faster than antivirus scanning. So, the question now is, is the transferring process dependent or independent of antivirus real time scanning?
With dependent, i meant, does the antivirus have to scan each file first before allowing the next file to get written to folder A.
Independent meaning transferring will transfer at its rate to folder A only limited by the bandwidth, and the antivirus will scan at its pace as well, which should be slower than transferring (thus, backlogging, then where’s the real time protection?)
