[clamav-users] DB update and clamav-milter delay

  I installed clamd server (0.98.7) with clamav-milter using RPM of EPEL.

With this installation, after every freshclam update session, clamd is  
forced to read the DB:

2015-09-29T09:12:41.244383+02:00 av1 clamd[15201]: Reading databases  
from /var/lib/clamav
2015-09-29T09:13:14.950256+02:00 av2 clamav-milter[11957]: Failed to  
stream to clamd
2015-09-29T09:13:14.950546+02:00 av2 clamav-milter[11957]: Streaming failed
2015-09-29T09:13:20.593439+02:00 av1 clamd[15201]: Database correctly  
reloaded (5342538 signatures)

During this time clamav-milter have a trouble and the SMTP server  
experiences a delay receiving the mail. On a frontend MSA SMTP server  
this delay is a problem.

I would like to know if there is a better way to configure the DB  
update, without interruption on service.
In case I remove the reload, is SelfCheck of Clamd sufficient to  
detect a change in DB?
Do you have any hint to improve performances?

Thank you very much
Best Regards
