Indeed, I tried it a few months ago, and between the speed (lack thereof)
and the memory consumption, it's just about useless. Like, 5-10x
slower than the already pokey 5.x series. Unless there's some
magic combination of CPU and Linux libraries that make it at least on-par,
it's probably not worth implementing at all.
So are there any other commercial AV engines that work especially well
I've tried to use Trend since we have a site license, but the command-line
scanner used in the MS scripts doesn't seem to be available anymore. A
call into Trend resulted in crickets chirping, and "Yeah we don't really
do that... anymore..." as the eventual response.
