Problems with HTTP Application defense Group / HTTP Application defense blocking file uploads

We have setup a AV policy ( via HTTP Application defense group  / HTTP Application defense ) that control file uploading to a server . Unfortunately large file upload start to hang..

What setting within the policy should I be looking at and what is responsible for the file uploads hanging ?

Re: Problems with HTTP Application defense Group / HTTP Application defense blocking file uploads

What exact version and patch level are you on?

$> cf package list

What settings do you have under Application Defenses -> Virus Scanning?

What settings do you have in the HTTP Application Defense -> MIME/Virus/Spyware (tab) that is used in this rule?

How large are these files that start to hang?  Are they archive files (zip/tar/etc.)?

Is this a physical firewall or a virtual firewall (in VMware)?  If this is a physical machine, what is the model number?  If this is a virtual firewall, how many CPUs/cores are dedicated to this firewall and how much memory is allocated to it?
