Shared Local Cache

To enable the use of the Shared Local Cache, click Setup > Enter application preferences > Shared Local Cache and select the check box next to Enable caching using ESET Shared Local Cache. This feature boosts performance in virtual environments by eliminating duplicate scanning in the network. This ensures that each file is scanned only once and stored in the shared cache. When this feature is enabled, information about scans of files and folders in your network is saved to the local cache. If you perform a new scan, ESET Endpoint Security for macOS searches for scanned files in the cache. If files match, they are excluded from scanning.

Shared Local Cache settings contain the following:

Server address – The name or IP address of the computer where the cache is located

Port – The port number used for communication (3537 by default)

Password – The Shared Local Cache password (optional)
