This site has amavis' temporary files on a tmpfs partition and the
quarantine on a regular file system. The amount of stuff writen to (and
then deleted on) the tmpfs system far exceeds the stuff writen to
/var/virusalert and costs most of the amavisd-new resources. This alone
has speeded up amavisd-new throughput by a factor of at least 10.
