[clamav-users] Clamd high CPU during clamdscan

I have rolled out clamd to a handful of Red Hat systems and they all seem
to have high CPU usage when clamdscan runs at 2am. The rest of the day,
clamd drops down to minimal usage. There isn't a lot of change on these
systems so I can't imagine it's finding much, but it really pegs the CPU's.
What configuration settings could I change for clamd or clamdscan to not
hammer the CPU?
