Configure the interval at which the agent collects data during scans for the assets associated with a configuration profile. The interval is the time lapse between the completion of the previous scan and the start of the next scan. Scan intervals are applied the next time the agent downloads the configuration profile.
To configure the scan interval, go to Agent Management > Configuration Profiles, and then edit an existing profile or create a new one.
Scan Interval specifies when a manifest will be executed. Select the interval in minutes between 240 minutes (4 hours) and 43200 minutes (30 days). Default is 240 minutes. The data collection interval you set in a single manifest is applicable to both vulnerability scans (VM) and policy compliance scans (PC, SCA).
The time added to the start of scanning, both for new installs and for interval scanning. Value of 0 (zero) means no delay added. Scan Delay configuration is only supported for Windows Cloud Agent 4.4 and later versions.
The range of randomization added to Scan Delay to offset scanning. For example, if the randomization range is 60 minutes, then a random number between 1 and 60 is calculated and used to delay the start of the next scanning interval. Value of 0 (zero) means no randomization will occur. Scan Randomize configuration is only supported for Windows Cloud Agent 4.4 and later versions.
