Clam Daemon(8) Clam AntiVirus Clam Daemon(8)
clamd - an anti-virus daemon
The daemon listens for incoming connections on Unix and/or
TCP socket and scans files or directories on demand. It
reads the configuration from /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf
clamd recognizes the following commands:
PING Check the server's state. It should reply with
Print program and database versions.
RELOAD Reload the virus databases.
Perform a clean exit.
Scan a file or a directory (recursively) with
archive support enabled (if not disabled in
clamd.conf). A full path is required.
Scan a file or directory (recursively) with archive
support disabled. A full path is required.
Scan file or directory (recursively) with archive
support enabled and don't stop the scanning when a
virus is found.
Scan file in a standard way or scan directory
(recursively) using multiple threads (to make the
scanning faster on SMP machines).
STREAM Scan stream - on this command clamd will return
"PORT number" you should connect to and send data
Start/end a clamd session which will allow you to
run multiple commands per TCP session. It's recom-
mended to prefix clamd commands with the letter n
(eg. nSCAN) to indicate that the command will be
delimited by a newline character and that clamd
should continue reading command data until a new-
line is read. The newline delimiter assures that
the complete command and its entire argument will
be processed as a single command.
Output help information and exit.
Print the version number and exit.
-c FILE, --config-file=FILE
Read configuration from FILE.
