Configuring on-demand scanning

You can use on-demand scanning to check files for viruses immediately or on a schedule. You might want to run scans only in off-peak hours, for example, or you might want to scan very large files that were excluded from an on-access scan.

You can use a cron schedule to specify when the task runs:

Only one task can be scheduled at a time on an SVM.

Note: On-demand scanning does not support scanning of symbolic links or stream files.
