Help on Data Protection > Antivirus > Settings

The following information and controls appear on Data Protection > Antivirus > Settings.

Enable Antivirus service
Determines the antivirus service is enabled.
Action on detection
Determines what OneFS action will take on files that threats are detected in.
Event only: Generate an event but do not quarantine or truncate infected files.
Only generates an event for each infected file. It is recommended that you do not apply this setting.
Repair infected file, or quarantine if repair is not possible
Attempts to repair infected files. If an ICAP server fails to repair a file, OneFS quarantines the file. If the ICAP server repairs the file successfully, OneFS sends the file to the user. Repair or quarantine can be useful if you want to protect users from accessing infected files while retaining all data on a cluster.
Repair infected file, or truncate if repair is not possible
Attempts to repair infected files. If an ICAP server fails to repair a file, OneFS truncates the file. If the ICAP server repairs the file successfully, OneFS sends the file to the user. Repair or truncate can be useful if you do not care about retaining all data on your cluster, and you want to free storage space. However, data in infected files will be lost.
Repair infected file, or generate an event if repair is not possible
Attempts to repair infected files. Afterwards, OneFS sends the files to the user, whether or not the ICAP server repaired the files successfully. It is recommended that you do not apply this setting. If you only attempt to repair files, users will still be able to access infected files that cannot be repaired.
Attempt to quarantine file when threat is found
Quarantines all infected files. It is recommended that you do not apply this setting. If you quarantine files without attempting to repair them, you might deny access to infected files that could have been repaired.
Attempt to truncate file when threat is found
Truncates all infected files. It is recommended that you do not apply this setting. If you truncate files without attempting to repair them, you might delete data unnecessarily.
Maximum File Scan Size
Configures OneFS scan only files that meet the specified size requirements. If 0 bytes is specified, OneFS scans all files.
Note Image

Specifying a maximum file size greater than 2GB might cause scans of large files to time out or fail. This might degrade system performance, prevent access to files, or cause policy-based scanning to report failures that have not occurred. Specify file sizes greater than 2GB only if you are certain that the ICAP servers can successfully scan files larger than 2GB.

Path Prefixes
Specifies which directories on-access scans are performed on.
Enable filters
Determines whether the specified filters are enforced.
Filter Matching
Specifies how filters are enforced.
Only scan files with the following extensions or filenames
Configures OneFS to scan only files that match the specified naming criteria.
Scan all files except those with the following extensions or file names
Configures OneFS to scan only files that do not match the specified naming criteria.
Glob Filters
Displays filters.
Add Filters
Adds one or more filters.

You can include the following wild cards:

Wildcard

Description

*

Matches any string in place of the asterisk.

For example, specifying m* would match movies and m123.

[ ]

Matches any characters contained in the brackets, or a range of characters separated by a dash.

For example, specifying b[aei]t would match bat, bet, and bit.

For example, specifying 1[4-7]2 would match 142, 152, 162, and 172.

You can exclude characters within brackets by following the first bracket with an exclamation mark.

For example, specifying b[!ie] would match bat but not bit or bet.

You can match a bracket within a bracket if it is either the first or last character.

For example, specifying [[c]at would match cat, and [at.

You can match a dash within a bracket if it is either the first or last character.

For example, specifying car[-s] would match cars, and car-.

?

Matches any character in place of the question mark.

For example, specifying t?p would match tap, tip, and top.
