How fast can MetaDefender Core process files?

Your performance will vary based upon many factors.

These include:

  • The more engines you have, the longer the scans will take

  • Customer licensed engines are slower than integrated engines

  • Files stored locally scan faster than those which have to be transferred over the network, such as with the REST interface

  • Using the RAM Disk option will improve performance

  • Archive extraction comes before scanning, so archives take longer to scan

For an estimate of what to expect, please see our performance test.
