Applies to

  • ONTAP 9
  • ONTAP Antivirus Connector (AV Connector)1.0.4
  • Trend Micro ServerProtect for Storage 6.0 Build 1119

Issue

  • CIFS access gets too slow after running the on-demand vscan.
  • The AV Connector queue: scanner_stats_pct_input_queue_avg is keeping a high usage (over 90%) even the on-demand vscan is stopped and vscan workloads are getting decreasing.

Example:

:*>  statistics show-periodic -interval 10 -object offbox_vscan_server -counter scanner_stats_pct_input_queue_avg|scan_request_timedout|scan_request_pending|scan_request_dispatched|scanner_stats_is_queue_full -instance svm01:xx.xx.xx.xx:sr-2650-04-01
