So if we are using only clamscan from a cronjob and freshclamd to update
the VSD then no need to startup clamd correct?

it's easy: if you don't use it you don't need it to start
if you use clamscan and nothing else you don't use it

* Brad Scalio <>:
When a clamscan is ran from cmdline or via cron is the virus signature
database checked before scanning commences

It is loaded, thus the long startup time.

in a fashion that if we aren't using clamdscan then is there a need for
clamd to run,

No. clamdscan together with clamd eliminated the long startup time
