I don't have an answer for you but I like to understand why would you like Tableau files to be excluded from virus check? Are you referring to Tableau Desktop or Server?
The reason for asking is because I would like to understand, assuming this is Tableau Server related - would turning antivirus speedup the performance of the server?
we have many performance problems with Tableau Server and we came across the idea than maybe the Virus Checker delays the execution of a report. Could it be our case? If so, how we could exclude it from virus check??
I am also thinking of turning off antivirus on my server for performance issues. Performance may or may not be related to antivirus, but at least will eliminate one of the factors. The machine that hosts our Tableau Server is dedicated to Tableau Server only, so I would turn the antivirus off completely.
