I keep getting this error on my VPS and I will have to say it's a bit out of my skill level to diagnose. Can Someone help?

Hello,

Could you verify if this continues to happen, and if so, if it corresponds with times that your VPS is rebooted? If not, do you notice any error output in /var/log/exim_mainlog or /var/log/exim_paniclog at the times the clamd service fails?

Thank you.
