I downloaded and
the difference in load time is huge. From nearly 30 seconds to about 2
seconds. I am timing how long it takes clamd to create and listen to it's
socket, which it does after it loads it's DBs (of course). This should
translate directly to MailScanner and ClamAVModule, as well as clamscan
(since the DB load time per file is the slowest part of clamscan). Given
your times it sounds like youmust be running about 5 children?
