scheduled scan: control priority / niceness of jobs
scheduled scans are still quite limited, as we can see here: https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/knowledgebase/117346.aspx
One of the options we would like to see is being able to give the scheduled scan some reduced system priority / i.e. niceness, to limit the performance impact of scans: scheduled scans normally need not run at high priorities.
Mark, thank you, but "scheduled" scan implies that a time can be set ...
setting a time is not the same as defining ressource limits like reduced system priority!
Within Sophos Central, you will be able to set up an Update Management policy to allow you to specify a time suitable for your organisation.
Some customers cannot enable Scheduled Scanning because their Workstations are a little bit old and they prefer to prevent schedule scanning. A better resources management should be possible (%CPU used, I/O, RAM, etc...)
