If your client uses the ICAP protocol or the RPC protocol, Symantec Protection Engine installs with a self-test scanning feature. Symantec Protection Engine performs a test every minute to check whether it is responsive and able to scan files. A test file is sent for Symantec Protection Engine to scan. If Symantec Protection Engine does not respond with a scan result before the timeout period expires, a Warning message is logged. Each self-test scan occurs 1 minute after the last self-test scan finishes.
Disable this feature if any of the following conditions apply:
You do not want the automatic self-testing scanning events to be logged to the specified logging destinations.
You configure Symantec Protection Engine to send alerts for Warning level events, but you do not want alerts about this event.
