Description Milan Kerslager 2011-08-03 14:26:53 UTC
Please enable clamd notification by default in /etc/freshclam.conf by:

NotifyClamd /etc/clamd.conf

This is worthless do run freshclam on daily basis without pinging to daemon.

Comment 1 Jan-Frode Myklebust 2011-08-04 06:32:51 UTC
It's not completely worthless, as clamd will do notice that the db-files has changed automatically every $SelfCheck seconds. 


From "man freshclam.conf":

       NotifyClamd STRING
              Notify  a  running clamd(8) to reload its database after a down-
              load has occurred. The path for clamd.conf  file  must  be  pro-
              vided.
              Default: The default is to not notify clamd. See clamd.conf(5)´s
              option SelfCheck for how clamd(8) handles  database  updates  in
              this case.
