Startup Notes

The component cannot be launched directly from command line of the operating system in an autonomous mode (autonomously from other components). It is launched automatically by the Dr.Web ConfigD configuration daemon when receiving requests on file system scanning from other components of Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers. To manage the operation of the component, as well as to scan files when needed, you can use the Dr.Web Ctl command-line-based management tool for Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers (it is launched by using the drweb-ctl command).

To scan an arbitrary file or directory using Dr.Web File Checker you can use scan command of Dr.Web Ctl:

$ drweb-ctl scan <path to file or directory>

To get documentation about this component of the product from the command line, use the following command: man 1 drweb-filecheck.
