In order to improve the file scan speed, a custom tempdirectory can be set for Metadefender Core.
Instructions for windows
Create a RAMDISK on your system.
We recommend the following tool for this: http://www.ltr-data.se/opencode.html/#ImDisk
After installation, use the ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver application, to create a new RAMDISK.
Mount new virtual disk:
After disk creation, windows will ask you to format the new disk.
Create, or edit the following registry entry:
In versions older that v4.6.0 the location of the configuration option is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\OPSWAT\Metascan Agent\global\tempdirectory
where tempdirectory should be a string value with a desired location, for example: Z:\tempDir
The Recommended minimum size for the tempdirectory is:
For non archive files: the average file size * 40, at least 10GB
For archive files: the average archive size * 200
The changes to take effect restart the OPSWAT Metadefender Code Node service.
After the service restart, your custom directory will be used for temporary file storage during file scan.
