Antivirus policy scanning

You can create antivirus scanning policies that send files from a specified directory to be scanned. Antivirus policies can be run manually at any time, or configured to run according to a schedule.

Antivirus policies target a specific directory on the cluster. You can prevent an antivirus policy from sending certain files within the specified root directory based on the size, name, or extension of the file. Antivirus policies do not target snapshots. Only on-access scans include snapshots. Antivirus scans are handled by the OneFS Job Engine, and function the same as any system job.
