  1. And that's exactly what I'm using the CLS for -- scanning a file on a local disk. There is nothing about the license that says I cannot scan files on my disk at will with the command line scanner. This is a server product for a *nix platform. This is exactly the sort of thing many system admins would want to do. I just want to integrate the scanner I already have into a product I already have (as I have with so many other scanning products in the past). Why have a command line scanner if you cannot scan files with it?! I don't want to be developing custom products and developing solutions
  2. I should also add that I have not observed this overhead on the Windows File Security command line scanner, only on the Linux and OSX versions.
  3. I think maybe you mean "not intended" instead of "proper". However, I don't see much other purpose for the command line scanner if it isn't to scan files and get the results. What would the command line scanner be for if not that? Wanting it to be efficient and work with the already loaded scanning system is hardly anything special -- things like this have been around for decades. This is a "server product" right? It should support automation and integration into local tooling... Can you point me to the ESET API documentation? Contacting a distributor is not normally how ones get in
  4. When using the Command Line Scanner (cls) to scan individual files while being uploaded to a server (we need to invoke the scanner for each file so we can reject an upload and abort an associated DB transaction), cls takes a few second to load all it's data/dictionaries/etc. It would be better if cls supported streaming the file via the already loaded scanning daemon, or could spawn a shared scanning daemon, so as to avoid reloading all the data each time. The lack of this functionality adds significant overhead when processing a lot of files (which our systems do daily). clamav supp
