Tuning AV Exclusions with ProcMon

So I'm trying to troubleshoot a situation where a server admin is claiming McAfee AV is causing some performance impact on a server.  As such, I got onto the server and ran Process Monitor for a little while.  I still am seeing McShield listed as the process hitting certain path's which I entered into that policy.  I can confirm the policy is applied to the endpoint by looking at the policy locally in ENS on the machine. 

What I'm wondering here is if I'm looking at ProcMon incorrectly or something.  What "operations" (in ProcMon) are to be to consider McShield as "scanning" the file/folder?  I see several entried for QueryOpen, CreateFile, & CloseFile.  I'm interpreting this as "scanning".  Am I incorrect? 

Any clarification would be helpful.
