Dropped down Max Children to 12 and installed the sophossavi module.

That made a HUGE difference. The load is down to around 2-3.
The sophossavi made the majority of the difference.

Do have one more question though:

sophossavi is reporting MyDoom as :

 MessageID: i0RLwFnh028241
    Report: SophosSAVI: was infected by W32/MyDoom-A
            ClamAV: contains Worm.SCO.A

Has anyone else noticed this (the duplicate name)?
