I would just like to start a discussion to get a Knowledge Base about the impacts of running Anti-Malware software on GIS processes on Windows Servers.


Recently my organization had to implement Anti-Malware software on Windows Servers and it has had some detrimental results where processes such as building/rebuilding address locators with suggestions (memory hog) no longer work.  As such, I was wondering if other organizations ran across similar issues and had to re-configure their Anti-Malware software (e.g. white-listing exes and dlls) and/or modifying server architecture (e.g. increase RAM, CPU).


Any help or hints about whatever other organizations needed to do to fix issues associated with implementing Anti-Malware software on GIS-based Windows Servers would be greatly appreciated.
