[Clamav-devel] clamav daily.cvd definition file size history

We do not have a publicly accessible history of all daily.cvd files. I
think the mirrors focus on serving the current versions of files. Given
what you said about downloading cvd files and not cdiff files, this should
give you a reasonable approximation for your purposes.

Based on my notes for 2015, daily.cvd was approximately:
- 32M Jan 1 to Mar 5 [version 19864 to 20152]
- 33M Mar 5 to May 4 [version 20153 to 20415]
- 34M May 4 to Jun 9 [version 20416 to 20576]
- 35M Jun 17 to Jul 10 [version 20577 to 20674]
- 36M Jul 10 to Aug 10 [version 20651 to 20773]
- 37M Aug 10 to current day [version 20774+]

Hope this helps,

Dave R.
