Running an Autodiscovery scan

Managing and running manual scans Copied

For the On-demand Scans, the Scan Management grid allows you to perform a set of actions that relate to running scans.

Scan management

Scan title Copied

This column displays each scan you have created, by their name.

The Control Copied

From this column, you can apply an action on the scan by clicking the icon. Note that only certain actions can be performed based on the scan’s current status (e.g. you cannot ‘show log’ before a scan is started).

If the scan is running against a large number of Hosts or detecting agents/SNMP/etc for each Host, it is prudent to ‘Show Log’ to see what is actually happening. This will have textual information about the current progress of the scan. The contents will automatically update as more data is processed by the scan.

Log for test local network

Status Copied

A Scan will transition between one of 4 states within Scan Management. These states are:

Actions Copied

You can take the following actions using the contextual menu of a given scan:

Clone and Delete options

Type Copied

This column will indicate whether your scan is a Windows, VMware or Windows scan.

Created at Copied

This column indicates the date and time of the creation of the scans.

Started at Copied

This column indicates the date and time of the start of the scan runs.

Estimated Copied

Is an evaluation of how long the Autodiscovery scan will run, based on the number of IPs in the configured range and the number of detections that need to be run.

Completed at Copied

This column indicates the date and time of the completion of the scan runs.

Managing and running scheduled scans Copied

You can see the list of scheduled scans by clicking on the On-demand Scans drop-down and selecting Scheduled Scans.

You can edit, delete, clone those scans. If needed you can also disable a scheduled scan if you do not wish for it to run on the next scheduled date/time, otherwise you do not need to trigger any action manually as the run will happen automatically on the date/time that you have configured.

On-demand scans options

There is an icon to denote that the scheduled scan is currently enabled:

Scheduled Scans

You can disable it via the contextual menu:

Disable scheduled scans

Disabling it is useful so that you can temporarily disable a scheduled scan, rather than deleting it permanently.

When a Scheduled Scan reaches the Scheduled time, a new On-demand Scan will be created using this Scheduled Scan as a template. If you click on the View Scans icon. Then you will be taken to the On-demand Scans grid, filtered by all the On-demand Scans created by this Scheduled Scan. This allows you to see the history of the scans for this Scheduled Scan:

Completed scheduled scans

If there are no On-demand Scans created, the View Scans icon will be disabled:

No on-demand scans icon
