Hi Massimo,

but clamscan still hang my server 1
(running on bare metal Xeon 4 core, 2GB ram, raid1 SSD storage)

I should not have to tell you this again, but oh well.  The amount of RAM
you have is irrelevant.  What matters is your VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT setting.
What is your current VIRTUALADDRESSLIMIT setting?  I'm currently running


I recommend you give it a try and see if this gives you enough address
space without causing other issues.

of course i've tried also to remove SPE (the tool that reduce "the load"
on the system") but it always freeze the server early in the scan
server completely hang, even no mouse movement

You need to be a bit more accurate.  Is the system hanging before or after
the signatures are fully loaded?

luckily on the other server (mta2) clamscan give no problems at all (mta2
runs on 1 core with 2GB ram and it's a VM under Vbox)

Did you compare the config.sys files for differences?



on server2 i've 3072 as VAL in config.sys
in the server 1 i've 1536

doh  :-)

i will do some tests with higher VAL values

thank you


with 2560 as value it works well and the server is stable

much thanks to you and Paul for the always excellent support
