ClamAV db timestamp

Post by Matt@ » 18 Mar 2021 07:49

I've just installed a new efa4 box to replace my efa3 one.

On the ClamAV status page the database timestamp doesn't seem to match with what's in var/log/messages - for example:

Status Page:

Code: Select all

Database Timestamp:	Mon Mar 15 11:06:12 2021
log file:

Code: Select all

/var/log/messages:7232:Mar 18 07:30:49 efa4 clamd[2521]: SelfCheck: Database modification detected. Forcing reload.
/var/log/messages:7233:Mar 18 07:30:49 efa4 clamd[2521]: Reading databases from /var/lib/clamav
/var/log/messages:7234:Mar 18 07:31:00 efa4 clamd[2521]: Database correctly reloaded (8704566 signatures)
/var/log/messages:7235:Mar 18 07:31:00 efa4 clamd[2521]: Activating the newly loaded database...
/var/log/messages:7236:Mar 18 07:41:01 efa4 clamd[2521]: SelfCheck: Database status OK.
So it looks like Clam is updating ok, is this expected behaviour (does it only update the timestamp on major versions or similar?)

Thanks,
Matthew
