Recommendation for Anti Virus Exclusions

Hello,

We are running TeamCity on a server that has Sophos Anti-Virus running on it.  I have read that running an anti-virus system on a Java Based Application can have an adverse effect on the performance of the application, and in some cases cause problems with starting and stopping the application.  Are there any recommendations for which TeamCity folders can be safely excluded from an anti-virus scan?

Thanks

Gary

Hi,

To run TeamCity together with Antivirus:
1. on server side: the java process needs to be allowed;
2. on agent side: the java process needs to be allowed, and all processes from <agent>\tools and <agent>\work folders.
Regarding effect on the performance of Java applications, we would recommend to ask Sophos community.
