Excluded Processes

Excluded processes are processes whose i/o is ignored by Persona. Certain anti-virus applications might need to be added to prevent performance problems. If an anti-virus application does not have a feature to disable offline file retrieval during its on-demand scans, this setting will prevent it from unnecessarily retrieving files. However, changes to files/settings in the users' profiles made by excluded processes are still replicated.

Supported on: VMware View Agent
