Citrix XenApp & Citrix Edgesight Recommendations when using Anti-Virus

The following are suggestions to help ease the negative affect that standard Anti-virus settings can cause on Citrix XenApp servers. As these servers are not used in the normal sense of the word Server, the scan and realtime aggressiveness needs to be adjusted for the Antivirus Software or performance will be affected.

Citrix XenApp settings:

  • Change what gets scanned to scan inbound only. Typical settings are to scan on write, read access, etc.
  • Scan local drives only
  • Exclude the pagefile from being scanned.
  • Exclude .dat and .tmp files.
  • Exclude C:Documents and Settings*.*
  • Disable the heuristics mode of scanning, this setting can be very intensive on the system
  • For Printing performance issues: Exclude the Spool folder, C:WINDOWSsystem32spool
  • Exclude the C:Program FilesCitrix folder and all subfolders
  • Exclude smss.exe, winlogon.exe, userinit.exe, csrss.exe and wfshell.exe
  • For Symantec only: Disable "Tamper Protection".
