The new safebrowsing cvd (starting with version 48473) seems to be sorted
in a way that increases the load time of that file by several orders of
I have a previous version from February where the entries in the gdb
section are sorted like this:
That loads into clamd (and clamscan) in under 5 seconds for the 3041760
entries in it.
Version 48473 and 48474 are sorted like this:
That version loads in 50+ seconds for the 3229612 entries in it.
If I flip the order of the entries so the :F: entries comes before the
corresponding :P: entry, it loads the same number of entries in 5 - 10
If I reorder the entire file so that _all_ the :F: entries for each section
(S or S2) come before the :P: entries for that section, it loads in under 5
Earlier today it was mentioned that 'the next version of the CVD' would fix
it (when 48473 was the current version). That seems to have not been the
case since 48474 didn't fix it. Is there a plan to fix it? Or will we have
to live with the enormous load times for this database?
