Speeding up your CI server

Our continuous integration server was running slower than usual. One of our chief IT guys figured it out; the antivirus software installed on it was set to scan all folders. Every check out, every build, every copy apparently triggered a scan. While it’s a good idea to scan the final deployment folders, exclude the rest of the folders for a significant improvement in build times.

We use TeamCity, but this is applicable to any CI software.

Thanks to Eric and Rob for this tip!
