Recommended Antivirus Exclusions

Antivirus software can take a long time to scan large directories and the numerous files within them. Additionally, if the antivirus software locks files or directories during a scan, those resources are unavailable to NiFi processes, causing latency or unavailability of these resources in a NiFi instance/cluster. To prevent these performance and reliability issues from occurring, it is highly recommended to configure your antivirus software to skip scans on the following NiFi directories:

  • content_repository

  • flowfile_repository

  • logs

  • provenance_repository

  • state
