File Scan Priority

Files of different file types and input sources have different processing priority. Priority means, under the same situation, files in the high priority queue will have a higher chance of being processed first. This means if a VM image is configured to scan two different job queues, the job queue with high priority will be scanned first and only when this queue is empty will the low priority job queue be processed. Therefore, it is recommended that different job queues are associated with different VM image(s). In this release, job queue priority can be adjusted in the Scan Policy > Job Queue Priority page. By default, the job queue priority is:

Files from On-Demand/RPC

sniffer/device submitted executable files

user defined file types

sniffer/device submitted Office files

sniffer/device submitted PDF files

sniffer/device submitted Android files sniffer/device submitted MacOS files

URLs of all sources

device submitted Adobe flash/web files

sniffer submitted Adobe flash/web files

Adapter submitted files

Network share submitted files
