We are required by internal rules to run anti-virus on all systems.
Are there any requirements for exclusion of files or directories if we are running anti-virus software on the CAPM host servers?
Because the database and catalog files are in use when Vertica is running, an anti-virus scan could lock a file or cause resource contention when Vertica needs to write to that file.
All supported releases
Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration
1. On the Data Repository systems:
Please exclude the following directories from any anti-virus scans when vertica is running:

the MySql directory:
3. On the DA host
Exclude the installation directory, the backup directory, and all subdirectories from antivirus scans.
