Scan exclusions


Go to solution Solved by Marcos,

New to eset.  Confused with the scan exclusion options.

If I add a file or folder to the "detection engine performance exclusion" will it be excluded from manual and scheduled scans or real time scan or both?

Do I need to add a file or folder to "real time process exclusion" if I want it to exclude from real time scan?

Also do I need to add the file or folder to "web access protection exclusion"?

I have read a few knowledge base articles on the topic but they are confusing.

Both performance and detection exclusions are honored by all scanners.

Performance exclusions are used as a last resort to resolve performance issues, e.g. if an application is continually logging into a large html file which triggers a re-scan after each write.

Detection exclusions have no effect on performance and serve to silence a particular detection on files or folders.

@MarcosThanks for your reply. 

All I understood was "detection engine performance exclusion" excludes files/folders from getting scanned by all scanners including the real time protection.

Performance exclusions - files are not scanned, exclusions are honored by all scanners.
Detection exclusions - files are scanned but the excluded detection name is not reported, exclusions are honored by all scanners.
