Situation

How do I disable autoloading of the signature engine and the IP reputation service?

Resolution


If no spam scanning is required and GWAVA is only being used for virus scanning, you can disable the ip reputation service and signature spam engine so that they do not load. Only do this if directed by support--this does not need to be done normally.

1) Modify services.conf
Open the file /opt/beginfinite/gwava/assets/services.conf in your favorite text editor. Add the /nosig argument to the gwava program as shown below.
[gwava]
program    ! gwava
arguments  ! /nosig
--Note--If you have a cluster and are already using the /gmanAddress switch you can add the extra switch by inserting a comma in between each argument (no spaces)
2) Restart GWAVA
rcgwavaman stop (wait for all of the modules to unload)
rcgwavaman start

The setting will now be in effect and the signature engine and IP reputation service will not load.
