Issue



The description for the FilerPerformanceThreshold parameter in the Symantec Protection Engine Implementation Guide for NAS and the Symantec Protection Engine Implementation Guide for Cloud Services is incorrect.

The FilerPerformanceThreshold parameter is described as follows:

This parameter is applicable in RPC protocol only. Scanning files over the network can cause network congestion. You can choose to scan files in-place on the RPC client share, thus improving the overall performance. This parameter allows you to specify the file size threshold value above which the file is copied from the RPC client share to the Protection Engine temporary folder. So you must choose a value greater than the average file size in your environment, to ensure that most of the files are scanned in-place.
