Have you had a look at zmq support in amavisd?
$enable_db = 0;
$enable_zmq = 1;
Once you have that in place, you can run the newer amavisd-snmp-subagent-zmq
agent in combination with amavis-mc:
31801 ? S 0:17 /usr/bin/perl -T /usr/sbin/amavis-mc -P /run/amavis/amavis-mc.pid
31803 ? Sl 4:25 \_ /usr/bin/perl -T /usr/sbin/amavis-services msg-forwarder
31804 ? Sl 4:34 \_ /usr/bin/perl -T /usr/sbin/amavis-services childproc-minder
31805 ? Sl 3:37 \_ /usr/bin/perl -T /usr/sbin/amavis-services snmp-responder
5653 ? Sl 0:27 /usr/bin/perl -T /usr/sbin/amavisd-snmp-subagent-zmq -P /run/amavis/amavisd-snmp.pid
