Trying to lower load for CXS

Community forum to discuss cxs.
If you believe that there is a problem with your cxs installation and want support then, as a paid product, you should use the helpdesk after having consulted the documentation.

Trying to lower load for CXS

Post by sahostking »

I think I got it to lower load a bit but now I'm noticing something strange with CXS watch:

This is CXS watch configuration:

/usr/sbin/cxs --Wstart --allusers --www --smtp -I /etc/cxs/cxs.ignore --options M --qoptions Mv --quarantine /cxs/scan/ --Wmaxchild 3 --nofallback --Wloglevel 0 --Wsleep 15 --filemax 0 --sizemax 200000 --Wrateignore 600

I'm noticing it is showing Script Version Checks in the scans. Why is that?

Am I doing something wrong.

I just want it to scan for "fingerprint match" and "virus"

If you don't want to scan for script versions you need to specify --nosversionscan in your cxs command in cxswatch.sh, as it is on by default.

According to your command line, you are actually only scanning for fingerprints, not viruses. If you want to scan for both fingerprints and viruses, you should change your --options list to --options Mv.
