Short Description
ClamAV daemon (with constantly updated virus database)
Full Description

docker-clamavd

ClamAV daemon as a Docker image. It builds with a current virus database and
runs freshclam in the background constantly updating the database. clamd
is listening on exposed port 3310.

Usage

docker run -d -p 3310:3310 dinkel/clamavd

or linked (this is how I use it)

docker run -d --name clamavd dinkel/clamavd
docker run -d --link clamavd:clamavd application-with-clamdscan-or-something

Configuration (environment variables)

None at the moment.

Data persistence

It has been a design decision to discard exporting the virus database to a data
volume as it will be always be brought up-to-date (quite quickly) upon starting
a new container.

Explaining run.sh

This is a poor man's supervisord. It is my strong (but not so much challenged)
belief, that there shouldn't be yet another process manager (Docker has one,
CoreOS has one (with fleet and systemd).

The only thing this script does is watching its forked (background) processes
and as soon as one dies, it terminates all the others and exits with the code
of the first dying process.

Todo

  • Make sure my little script above works in all circumstances. I know that when
    omitting the -d one cannot stop the process using <Ctrl><c>.

  • Make sure all logs are written to stdout or stderr.
