When running scans with Symantec Endpoint Protection for Linux, the computer has performance issues. The rtvscand process may consume above-average resources.
Endpoint Protection for Linux is configured by default to scan for the highest level of security, not the best performance. Auto-Protect may also consume additional resources when scanning compressed files, especially large archive formats (it can only scan 3 archive levels maximum).
To increase scan performance, you can disable scanning of compressed files and/or exclude directories that contain large archival file formats. Disable/exclude the scanning of remote (shared network file systems)—shared file systems should be scanned by the host and not by remote clients.
