The Other day I ran a full scan with CCE 6.0 and the whole scan took 11 hours 42 mins which I thought was a bit long. I have run CCE 6.0 with a Full scan in the past and the scan was done just under 2 hours.
Therefore, I guess this is a bug with CCE.
The CCE version is: 6.0.264710.2708
My HDD size with all info on it as in used space is 15 GB
It seems way to much time for just 15GB, only if there would be a lot of compressed files on it it might make sense.
Can you check to see if you CPU is maxed out during scan? I think this justifies a bug report as time v.s. size doesn’t seem right.
First of all I check often for compressed files (So I don’t think, there is an issue there)
When I ran this Scan I had no internet Access to this Computer, I unplugged the Ethernet cable to Computer and used my laptop in a different location.
I checked the scan about 1 hour later and it was at 48% done
usually at this time it’s about 60% done
Therefore, I opened up Task Manager under windows and the CPU was showing 100% usage
Therefore, I left and came back 1 hour later; the scan showed 55%, and the CPU was still 100%
Therefore, I left it again, came back to my PC after 4 hours, and was at 60%, So that point I wrote down on paper the progress of it.
So I left it again and came back 7 hours later after starting the scan and it showed 82%, So that point I said to myself this is a bug here, I will have to ride this out and write down when this finishes.
I came back to my PC to check the progress just less than 10 hours and it read 93% I rechecked CPU and showed 100% still
So I came back and looked at my PC and it said scan complete and it read 11:42:18 and the top said The System needs to reboot to complete scan So I pressed reboot and my system rebooted. When it came, back CCE started so I press yes and it came up and showed a monitor symbol that was green and blue tick across the monitor symbol and under that it said No Treats found.
So then, I shut down my PC and came back on the 25th Feb to log my report as shown on first post.
Sorry I did not do my first post like this, so hope this fully explains all.
Other info about my Computer My Processor is AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.0 GB RAM
My Processor is set as it is, as in not over clocked
So to recap, a full scan with Internet connection takes 25 minutes, the same scan same system without Internet connection takes over 11 hours right?
That smells like to high time-outs on Internet queries / File lookup service, there is nothing you can do about that, just file the bugreport, link it to this post and it’s up to the dev’s to fix it.
So the difference between a full scan without Internet 11h45m and with Internet 4h25m is quite large.
The only explanation I can reasonably find is that 7h20m delay for having no Internet is quite extensive.
Please don’t compare the scan times with CIS v6 because that uses a different approach, and scan optimizations etc.
CCE does a full ‘non smart’ scan of your entire system. but it seems to add 0.05 sec delay per scanned object if the lookup fails because there is no connection the ‘the cloud’.
