Subject: [Clamav-users] clamd eating too much cpu resource

hi,

i'm having high cpu usage from clamd:

       PID USERNAME THR PRI NICE SIZE RES STATE C TIME WCPU COMMAND
    8988 clamav 7 129 0 166M 163M RUN 0 54.5H 161.43% clamd

i tried to kill it but nothing worked. (kill, pkill, killall, /usr/local/etc/rc.d/clamav-clamd). can anyone give a hint on how to kill it? and why is it consuming too much cpu time?

btw, i'm using the latest clamd from the freebsd ports collection (v. 0.92).

thanks,
mark
