[clamav-users] Sporadic signature frequency

Its an optimization to how we do deletes on the backend build.  Nothing forward facing.

Thanks Joel, that makes sense, what's is the issue with the current deletion strategy?

Yes —

Since more and more content is being shipped, it’s taking longer and longer to build the daily.cvd.  So if the build of a daily is locked when it comes around to build the next one, it doesn’t build the second one.  Hence why they are coming more spaced out.

Couple remedies for this, all of which require development, time, and bandwidth:

1. Make a new main.cvd and push it out (easiest fix)
2. Optimize how we do deletes

But the beginning of this email is the reason.

That’s what I noticed as well, anyone know why?

Actually, they have been coming every 8 hours since 8 March. It was 6 hours on 7 March and 4 hours before that.

Hey folks, I've noticed that new sig databases are coming out at a fairly inconsistent frequency lately,  is this accidental or for a particular reason?
