Does using the file screen functionality on File Server Resource Manager add a performance hit?

Last Modified: 2015-07-30
Hey everyone,

We're looking at setting up a file screen on our file clusters to look for decrypt*.* in the hope that we can catch it early. I have a few questions about this method.

1. Does FRSM need to be installed and setup on EVERY cluster node.
2. Does using this file screen feature add a performance overhead and slows down file/folder moving and copying?
