Behaviour of Docker with Antivirus

Hello,

With the reference of document: https://docs.docker.com/engine/security/antivirus/

It is suggested to exclude below folders :
“/var/lib/docker” on Linux , “%ProgramData%\docker" on Windows etc.

If above folders are not excluded then:

  • Which docker commands may hang? or any other side effects?

Thanks,
Sheetal

Meh, dude. I think you have a bed antivirus and you’d better change it. Of course, there is no perfect antivirus but I strictly recommend you to read about Intego pros and cons in https://bestantiviruspro.org/review/intego-review/ and decide if it suits you or not. At least, this antivirus is trustworthy and operates well.
