I am working on a possible issue with clamav. Right now is too early for me to tell about my problem.
But could you tell me how long it takes your system to do a full scan.
If you are doing virus scanning either daily or weekly using the setting in server-manager panel , you will then find that information in a daily or weekly email to the admin account.
Basically I want to know if your scan takes over one hour to complete and how many hours if so.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks
Your scan time is on the low time to process.
If it were high (long) time. I would make some comments.
But I have none other than I do not think scanning full files on your system has
a impact on your problem

I am not totally sure that mine is the exact problem as the open bug report but it may be.  If I need to open a new bug report, admin, please let me know.
Thanks.

I finally got one message like your problem early in the week.
I did work on some create some script work arounds.
The bash script i created is much smoother and only disables the freshclam service only while making the cvd updates.  That code has not been posted yet but soon I will.
ClamAV site mentioned they did have some issues in February.
