I'm currently using a Barracuda 600 appliance to filter spam. When doing broader searches, such as using the Reason Filter to see what a custom filter might have blocked, it can take a full minute to finish searching. I do have a lot of custom filters.

I was wondering if anyone using the Vx virtual appliance had experimented with allocating a lot more RAM to the virtual server and/or trying a solid state drive found if either option significantly speeded up their Barracuda Vx?
