Acronis Cloud Security offers flexibility in defining the frequency of definition updates and concurrent scan jobs, allowing you to tweak these values for your environment. This article explains these options and how to configure them within the Cloud Security Console.


Acronis Cloud Security Edition


From your Acronis Cloud Security Console select Settings followed by AntiVirus:

The Antivirus Settings page will load, allowing you to specify Definitions Update Frequency, Full Update Definitions Settings, and Workload Orchestration.

If any options are not present please ensure you are running the latest version of Acronis Cloud Security.

Definitions Update Frequency

Here you can set the time period and frequency for definition updates.


Full Update Definitions Settings

Full Update Definitions are larger than incremental. From this section you can choose how frequently Full Updates are downloaded:

  • Every X runs
  • Daily (every X days)
  • Weekly
  • Monthly

Regardless of the option set, if the previous incremental updates exceed the size defined in 'Maximum definitions size to perform full update', a full update will be download.


Workload Orchestration

Here you can define the maximum concurrent scan jobs on a host. Limiting this value may increase the total scan time, but ease the load on the host storage.
