Antivirus Gateway Problems III

All attempts to get the antivirus gateway to process messages faster have failed. Network Associates, the maker of the product, stated that the theoretical limit of throughput for the software was 5-10000 messages per hour, if no messages are infected, and if no other filtering was being done. They were unable to say exactly what was causing what we’re seeing.

We will take the gateway out of the mail flow overnight and see whether this allows it to recover.
