Ways to improve Symantec Protection Engine performance
Symantec Protection Engine installs with a default configuration that is designed to balance scanning services with scanning performance. However, you can modify Symantec Protection Engine settings and resources to maximum performance.
Before you make any modifications, carefully consider the trade offs between security and performance. For example, excluding certain files from being scanned improves overall performance. However, the files that are not scanned might contain security risks or threats that could contaminate your network if unscanned.
Ensure that you monitor performance regularly so that you can detect any degradation in performance and make the necessary adjustments as soon as possible.
