Hello!
We recently determined with htop that /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/clamd takes a lot of CPU resources.
What is correct way to reduce clamd CPU utilizing? We're using Cloudlinux.
Thanks!

Hi @Rakaris Bakaris
If you're using ClamAV to constantly scan your site data it will naturally use a large amount of resources. Can you detail how you're using ClamAV?
