zfs vscan clamav


just started to work with ZFS. found "vscan" option in dataset which sounds quite promising.

is it possible to use clamav as a virus scanner for zfs? If yes could you please share some experience?

This property is a legacy option way back from Sun Solaris / OpenSolaris (yes, even before Oracle got its hands on it) and it only indicated that the vscan service should monitor this dataset - there is nothing else going on at the ZFS side.

You could basically re-implement that functionality by adding your own property e.g. scanme=off|on, then have a service check this property and fire clamav every time a file on that dataset is read or written.
