    • Ignore Mask: It lets you specify certain file types to ignore (for instance, *.html ignores all files with the HTML extension).
    • CPU Consumption: * Defines the CPU utilisation for scanning without reducing efficiency from low to high.
    • I/O consumption: The I/O utilisation for scanning is defined, with a range of Low to High.
    • Follow Symlinks: Track all symlinks within the folder to scan.
      NOTE: LVE is used to control scan intensity while Imunify360 is running on the CloudLinux OS. The CPU is controlled by “nice” when it is running on another operating system, and “ionice” when the I/O scheduler is CFQ.
