defender scan effect on servers

Hi,
I'm going to be installing defender on about 30 sites on the same machine. Is it wise to set the automatic update all to the same time or would that be too memory intensive? how resource heavy are defender scans?

    Hello cornelius_butler ,

    Hope you are well today and thanks for asking us. :slight_smile:

    According to me, its for sure not a good idea to go for bulk scan at the same time. You could try doing 5 scans at a time and evaluate its results. Point here is that you try to conduct scan in a such a way that it give your results in short time so you can evaluate and perform necessary operation.

    Memory consumption for Defender varies from site to site. It really depends on many factors so i can't exact give you any rough idea that how much it would be using !! It takes files folder, and contents in the files, folder to carry out good scan. :slight_smile:

    Conclusion is that you go with smaller bulk numbers. :slight_smile:

    Let me know if you need anything else. :slight_smile:
    Kind Regards,
