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 Registry processes, causing latency or unavailability of these resources in a NiFi Registry instance. 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 Registry directories:

  • database

  • extension_bundles

  • flow_storage

  • logs
