Checking vscan information

You can quickly determine whether the virus scanner is on, how well the virus scanner is working, and what files extensions are scanned and not scanned.


  1. Enter the following command: vscan
    The system displays the on/off status of vscan, information about the virus-scanning clients, the list of extensions to scan, and the number of files scanned and number of scan failures in a display like the one shown in the following paragraph.


systemA> vscan
