Scan Performance and Statistics

Scan statistics for the Safe Browsing service can be viewed using the perfmon snapin. Total number of checks performed, number of detected and clean URLs and number of failures are shown, as well as average speed of scanning.



Most checks are done using locally present database of malicious URLs but sometimes the algorithm needs to contact Google services. If access to google services is limited in your environment, then speed of the checks is negatively affected and overall browsing might appear to become slow.
