Anti-Virus on the Application Server

It is important to achieve a balance between ensuring a secure and virus free server environment while also not interfering with reliability and performance of the application. Running anti-virus programs on the application server that actively scan application data or file access for the EcoSys application has been observed to significantly degrade overall performance

To ensure stable performance EcoSys recommends excluding the following:

  • Exclude the EcoSys batch jobs folder on the application server (for example, c:\EcoSys\batch)

  • Exclude the EcoSys log folder on the application server (for example, c:\EcoSys\log)

Anti-Virus on Client Workstations

Anti-virus programs that scan web content such as XML often significantly degrades GUI performance in the browser. For this reason it is recommended that client-side anti-virus programs be configured to exclude web pages and data loaded from the EcoSys application servers.

To ensure stable performance EcoSys recommends excluding the following:

  • Exclude EcoSys application URL for all users (for example, http://ecosys.customer.com/ecosys)
