EFS runs too many scans


Go to solution Solved by C0nfused,

We have a situation where EFS runs multiple scheduled scans. Sometimes it spawns as many as 20 at the same time which grinds our VMs to a halt. It seems each scan runs over the same files wich does not make any sense. 

 

We run a mixture of MS Server 2008/2008R2/2012R2. This particular issue happens on all MS server versions.

 

Servers have scheduled in-depth scans assigned to them via policies. Each server has only one weekly scan scheduled to run after hours.

 

I cannot see any specific settings which would control this behaviour.

 

See attached pics for more details.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Tom

Hi,

 

which version of EFSW do you use?

Please try changing the setting "If task was skipped the next run should occur" to "At next scheduled time". Does it help?

I have deleted and re-created all scan schedules with option to scan "At the next scheduled time"  if missed.

 

Seems to have resolved the issue.

 

Thanks

Tom
