Issue/Introduction

What does the Agent Config DelayMsBetweenImageEnumeration do?

Environment

  • App Control Agent: All Supported Versions
  • Microsoft Windows: All Supported Versions

Resolution

The Agent will periodically enumerate all running processes, and validate that they are Approved to run. This property controls the time between these enumerations. Setting this to 0 is not recommended, as it will disable the operation and reduce the Security Posture of the Agent.

Additional Information

  • Setting this value to 0 can decrease memory and CPU consumption when a large number of users are on the same system.
  • This setting will not increase hashing time for files, and shouldn't affect .TMP files.
  • Setting this value to 0 will reduce¬†security, as the agent will not check running processes.
