Speeding up BES Console load time

(imported topic written by BenKus)

Hey guys,

We recently had some feedback from a customer that got a big console load-time performance increase when they excluded the console folders from McAfee. From the customer:

"We made the change with our McAfee AntiVirus exclusions and now the console is about 50-90% faster loading. The exlcusion was on the computers with the BigFix Console insalled:

Remove McAfee on-access scanning for the following directory on

“C:\Documents and Settings*\Local Settings\Application Data\BigFix*”

(* is wildcard)"

You might get a similar performance increase with other AV scanners too.

Hope that helps,
