linux default iconClamFS Publisher's description

ClamFS is a FUSE-based user-space file system for Linux with on-access anti-virus file scanning through clamd daemon.

ClamFS is a FUSE-based user-space file system for Linux with on-access anti-virus file scanning through clamd daemon.

Here are some key features of "ClamFS":

?пїЅ User-space file system (no kernel patches, recompilation, etc.)
?пїЅ Configuration stored in XML files
?пїЅ FUSE (and libfuse) used as file system back-end
?пїЅ Scan files using ClamAV
?пїЅ ScanCache (LRU with time-based and out-of-memory expiration) speeds up file access
?пїЅ Sends mail to administrator when detect virus

What's New in This Release:

В· A new "check" option was added to allow you to mount a ClamFS file system when clamd is not available, such as during an early stage of the boot process.
В· The "readonly" option was added to the filesystem options allowing you to create a read-only protected file system.
В· Negative scan cache was implemented to cache information about infected files and avoid re-scanning until file change.
В· Finally, ClamFS has filesystem statistics that allow you to monitor and tune its performance.

System Requirements:

?пїЅ Clam AntiVirus
?пїЅ Filesystem in Userspace (Second Generation branch)
?пїЅ GNU Common C++
?пїЅ POCO - C++ Portable Components
?пїЅ RLog
?пїЅ dmalloc (optional)
