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!

    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...)
