Limits

The Limits section allows you to specify the maximum size of objects and levels of nested archives to be scanned:

Maximum Size: Defines the maximum size of objects to be scanned. Once maximum size is defined, the antivirus module will scan only objects smaller than the size specified. This option should only be changed by advanced users who have specific reasons for excluding larger objects from scanning.

Maximum Scan Time: Defines the maximum time allotted for scanning an object. If a user-defined value has been entered here, the antivirus module will stop scanning an object when that time has elapsed, whether or not the scan has finished.

Maximum Nesting Level: Specifies the maximum depth of archive scanning. We do not recommend changing the default value of 10; under normal circumstances there should be no reason to modify it. If scanning is prematurely terminated due to the number of nested archives, the archive will remain unchecked.

Maximum File Size: This option allows you to specify the maximum file size for files contained in archives (when they are extracted) that are to be scanned. If scanning is prematurely terminated as a result of this limit, the archive will remain unchecked.
