Running an On-Demand Scan task in the background
3 August 2023
By default the processes in which Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Nodes tasks are executed are assigned the Medium (Normal) priority.
A process that will run an On-Demand Scan task can be assigned Low priority. Demoting the process priority increases the time required to execute the task, but may have a beneficial effect on the performance of the processes of other running programs.
Multiple background tasks can be running in a single worker process with low priority. You can specify the maximum number of processes for On-Demand Scan background tasks.
To change the priority of an existing On-Demand Scan task:
- Open the Properties: On-Demand Scan window.
- Select or clear the Perform task in background mode check box.
- Click the OK button.
Configured task settings are saved and applied immediately to a running task. If the task is not running, the modified settings are applied at next start.
