Problem Description

Web browsing is slow when ProxyAV is scanning Web content
You are experiencing unresponsiveness or slowness


Certain types of traffic can cause performance issues when scanned. Typical symptoms to look for are:

  • Slow response time from the proxy to the user
  • HTTP Client histogram in GUI shows steady increase in number of client workers or numbers that are not representative of the actual number of browser sessions possible in the environment

Blue Coat recommends that anyone who is doing virus scanning with ProxyAV and experiencing slowness review the following document:
