I know that Clamd uses Multiscan mode when we perform scan over dirtectory
to do Parallel scanning using available threads.. but In the case of you
 suggested command  we only able to send  the file one by one to Clamd
server through clamdscan request.so we can't able to take the advantage of
multi-threading.so it increases overall scanning time
