Library(persistency) and Microsoft Defender

When using library(persistency) a file will be created of multiple assert statements.

In converting a large XML file (6.5 GB) (175,351,738 lines) to facts on Windows, Microsoft Defender CPU usage goes up nearly as much as the CPU usage of SWI-Prolog.

If you trust what you put into the file then Windows Defender can be set to exclude based on

  • File
  • Folder
  • File type
  • Process

The noted 6.5 GB file is the current (06/16/2022) UniProt file which can be downloaded from here.
