 +#### 1.3.2.1 Disabling HTTP/S Anti-Virus Network-Scanning
 +
 +Almost all anti-virus products support to scan the HTTP/S network traffic but they are often not able to handle the load released by a load test – and they delay also the measured response times. Therefore we recommend that you disable scanning of HTTP/S network connections for viruses. **Please note that you should not disable completely your virus scanner. Especially scanning the Disk I/O for viruses should be still enabled.**
 +
 +The following picture shows as an example how to disable HTTP/S anti-virus scanning in Kaspersky:

 +
 +We recommend that you re-enable HTTP/S anti-virus scanning after the execution of your load tests has been completed.
